In most of the scenarios, communication in Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) takes place via multi-hop routing. Multi-hop routing does not provide much protection against identity deception, developed through the replay of routing information. This defect can be exploited by an opponent to launch several harmful attacks or even attacks that destroy the routing protocols, misdirecting the network traffic which results in disastrous consequences. In order to secure the multi-hop routing in WSNs from the adversaries, a Credit Based Security Scheme (CBSS) for WSN is proposed.
