Conceptual Framework on Assessment of Risk Factor in Wireless Sensor Network

  • Chavan Sidram Nagnath, Dr. Deepika Pathak


Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have attracted a lot of interest over the last decade in wireless and mobile computing research community. Applications of WSNs are numerous and growing, which range from indoor deployment scenarios in the home and office to outdoor deployment in adversary’s territory in a tactical battleground. We identify the security threats, review proposed security mechanisms for wireless sensor networks. We also discuss the holistic view of security for ensuring layered and robust security in wireless sensor networks.
