This work introduces FAIR, a novel framework for Fuzzy-based Aggregation providing In-network Resilience for Wireless Sensor Networks. FAIR addresses the possibility of malicious aggregator nodes manipulating data. It provides data-integrity based on a trust level of the WSN response and it tolerates link or node failures. Compared to available solutions, it offers a general aggregation model and makes the trust level visible to the querier. We classify the proposed approach as complementary to protocols ensuring resilience against sensor leaf nodes providing faulty data. Thanks to our flexible resilient framework and due to the use of Fuzzy Inference Schemes, we achieve promising results within a short design cycle.
