This paper investigates the INTERSECTION framework's ability to build resilience into wireless sensor networks. The framework's general details are examined along with general approaches to protection against misbehaving WSN nodes. Three different approaches to remediation were implemented and tested on a TinyOS network for their different operating characteristics. Many aspects of computing involve the need to intelligently and dynamically select between many possibilities to achieve optimisation. One example of such a field is network resilience. Modern networks are exposed to a wide-range of possible security attacks that can be remediated through a variety of mechanisms.
