In this paper, we propose a novel anti-eavesdropping scheme by introducing friendly jammers to a wireless network of things (WNoT). In particular, we establish a theoretical framework to evaluate the eavesdropping risk of WNoT with friendly jammers and the eavesdropping risk of WNoT without jammers. Our theoretical model takes into account various channel conditions such as the path loss and Rayleigh fading as well as the placement schemes of jammers. Our extensive numerical results show that using jammers in WNoT can effectively reduce the eavesdropping risk. Besides, our results also show that the eavesdropping risk heavily depends on both the channel conditions and the placements of jammers.
