Main Article Content

Wireless sensor networks are developing technology paradigm consisting of small, low-power devices that consist of limited computation, sensing and radio communication capabilities.

Wormhole attacks can destabilize or disable wireless sensor networks. In a typical wormhole attack, the attacker receives packets at one point in the network, forwards them through a wired or wireless link with less latency than the network links, and relays them to another point in the network. We have presented several existing methods to detect wormhole attack in wireless sensor networks.
