Typical sensor nodes are resource constrained devices containing user level applications, operating system components, and device drivers in a single address space, with no form of memory protection. A malicious user could easily capture a node and tamper the applications running, in order to perform different types of attacks. In this paper, we propose a remote live forensics protection architecture that prevents the execution of tampered software while alarming the owners of the sensors network. Using sandboxing to restrict application memory accesses within the address space and forensic techniques to validate the authenticity of the running applications we prevent malicious code from being executed while specifying the intrusion.
