A simulation-based analysis of the impact of Blackhole attacks on DV-Hop based positioning in wireless sensor networks is presented in this research. A wireless sensor grid is first simulated, then the nodes' positions are established using DV-Hop based placement, followed by the introduction of a Blackhole into the grid. The impacts of this Blackhole on node localization are then determined for different hop lengths between the Blackhole Start Point (SP) and End Point (EP).
