In wireless sensor networks (WSNs), as the shared nature of the wireless medium, jamming attacks can be easily launched and result in a great damage to the network. How to deal with jamming attacks has become a great concern recently. Finding the location of a jammer is important to take security actions against the jammer, and thus to restore the network communication. After a comprehensive study on the jammer localization problem, a lightweight easy-operated algorithm called triple circles localization (TCL) is proposed. The evaluation results have demonstrated that, compared with other approaches, TCL achieves the best jammer localization accuracy under variable conditions.
