Background and Objective:Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) has become one of the most widely research areas; it proves to be a very supportive technology for various applications such as environmentalbased, military-based, health-based, home-based, office, and multimedia applications. Security is the major area of concern among many challenges in routing in theWSN. To solve the security challenge of any routing protocol, it must be confirmed that every new node entering the network is legitimate, efficient and energy aware counter measures have to be designed to prevent intrusion into the network.
This paper presents a survey on some of the proposed schemes for securing routing protocols of WSNs, design challenges which include data delivery models, energy efficiency, quality of service and overheads. We also discussed some of the attacks peculiar to WSN routing protocols and an overview of some proposed solutions for thwarting these attacks.
Conclusion: Our work is concluded by exposing the possible research areas in the WSN.
Security, routing protocol, wireless sensor networks, energy efficiency, technology, electronic devices.
