Publication Date : 09/09/2015
Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is an emerging technology that shows great promise for various futuristic applications both for mass public and military. The sensing technology combined with processing power and wireless communication makes it lucrative for being exploited in abundance in future. The inclusion of wireless communication technology also incurs various types of security threats. Since security is a critical issue for the sensor networks being accepted and being used for many software applications, we would also attempt to analyze the threats against the Wireless Sensor Networks, in turn proposing some measure to counter the attacks against the Wireless Sensor Networks. The intent of this paper is to analyze the security related issues and challenges in wireless sensor networks. We identify the security threats, review proposed security mechanisms for wireless sensor networks. We also discuss the holistic view of security for ensuring layered and robust security in wireless sensor networks.
