Description Using new methodologies such as Blockchain in data communications in wireless sensor networks (WSN) has emerged owing to the proliferation of collaborative technologies. However, the WSN is still vulnerable to denial of service cyber attacks, in which jamming attack becomes prevalent in blocking data communications in WSN. The jamming attack launches malicious sensor nodes to block legitimate data communications by intentional interference. This can in turn cause monitoring disruptions, data loss and other safety-critical issues. In order to address the malicious attacks, this paper proposes an adaptive anti-jamming solution based on Hyperledger Fabric-based Blockchain, named as ABAS, to ensure the reliability and adaptivity of data communication in case of jamming attacks. In order to validate the ABAS solution, we applied the algorithm in healthcare WSN and showed that ABAS has significantly reduce the jamming coverage and energy consumption while maintaining high computational performance.
