A Recent Technique to Detect Sink Hole Attacks in WSN

A Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) consists of large number of low cost low power sensor nodes. The nature of wireless sensor networks makes them very attractive to attackers. One of the most popular and serious attacks in wireless sensor networks is sink hole attack and most existing protocols to defend against this attack used cryptographic methods with keys. In sink hole attack a sensor node will have a lot of false neighbors. Wireless Sensor Network has a dynamic topology, intermittent connectivity, and resource constrained device nodes. Researchers over the past years have encouraged the use of mobile agent to overcome these challenges.
