WSN (wireless sensor network) is a network that is establish in hostile environment and this network is remotely managed that increases their vulnerable to attack. There is many attacks but wormhole attack is easy to deployed and hard to detect in a network. In wormhole attack malicious nodes create low latency link in the network. It receive packet from one end tunnel that packet to another end. In this paper we have surveyed many existing methods for wormhole attack detection with merits and demerits.
