In this paper, we propose a theoretical framework to investigate the eavesdropping behavior in underwater acoustic sensor networks. In particular, we quantify the eavesdropping activities by the eavesdropping probability. Our derived results show that the eavesdropping probability heavily depends on acoustic signal frequency, underwater acoustic channel characteristics (such as spreading factor and wind speed) and different hydrophones (such as isotropic hydrophones and array hydrophones). Simulation results have further validate the effectiveness and the accuracy of our proposed model.
