Security of networked Bayesian source localization algorithms is analysed in this paper. The Bayesian estimators construct the probability density function of the location of the source from quantised measurements. Understanding fundamental limits in the performance of an adversary for manipulating the posterior of the Bayesian estimator is the main focus of the paper. The analysis is performed for cases where the estimator is not aware of the presence of the adversary. The results are then generalized to the case where the estimator is aware of the attacker.
