Detection of malicious node in the neighborhood with minimal infrastructure and computations is a requirement. The existing models require more computation, storage, and complex security calculations. These models are inefficient in wireless sensor networks due to their resource limitations. Therefore, an agent-based approach that maintains the node's current status is proposed in this research. In agent-based approach detection is possible through maintaining the ratings of each node. The ratings of a node will be done through the ratio of packet forwarded by packets received. Further, the ratings can be done using the E-commerce models.
