          networks based on the SPRT with secret key
         The interaction between the detector and the adversary was modeled by a
          repeated game.
         The process of short term and long term, secret key and SPRT, various time
          slots are analyzed.
         Also the results of these simulations show that our scheme quickly detects
          mobile replicas with a small number of location claims against either
  6. Future Enhancement
      This work may be extended in distributed environment to improve the
      performance and also to reduce the single point of failure.
