Wireless sensor networks are vulnerable to many attacks due to the lack of security, power limitations, resource handling, and limitation of capability. In order to satisfy secure communication between all nodes and efficient power consumption, this paper proposes secure path-based hybrid routing protocol for wireless sensor network. The proposed routing protocol is a hybrid of two protocols namely: cluster-based and tree-based protocols. To protect from attack, the proposed protocol uses fuzzy Logic inference system for selection of the secure route.
