Femtocells can extend the last-mile accessibility for the current cellular networks so as to serve more users indoors and improve the spectrum utility. However, since the indoor femtocell establishment can be ad hoc, HeNBs may also be inevitably vulnerable to the rogue-HeNB (uncoordinated or illegitimate HeNB) attack in practice. For detecting rogue-HeNBs, a two-dimensional received signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) map is exploited to construct a spatial radio-activity feature map (RAFM). Mathematical proof is derived to justify that the existence of any femtocell interference corresponds to a flat-bottom convex region in the RAFM. Advanced image processing techniques are designed here to localize the radio interference (rogue-HeNB) over the RAFM. Thus, a novel positioning scheme is proposed in this paper to undertake the accurate rogue-HeNB localization for the femtocell networks. Different indoor scenarios are evaluated through the real experiments for our proposed method. The average accuracy can be within one meter for a 6.75 meter by 8.1 meter laboratory.
