The unattended nature of the WSN makes the nodes susceptible to various attacks. Among many of the possible attacks, ones that are focused on draining nodes’ energy are most dangerous since they leave the network dead. This paper proposes a scheme to detect the aggressive behavior of nodes by using the packet- forwarding behavior of the nodes. Trust value is lessened if in any case there is a difference between the number of packets forwarded by the sensor hub during data transmission is discovered abnormal. In this way, after a certain number of rounds, nodes which are acting as aggressive will be removed. For transmitting the information over the system effectively when the abnormal hub is to be expelled from existing path would require second way promptly accessible, to take care of this issue in this method two nearest neighboring hubs are chosen to shape two ways. The rendition of the system is analyzed on the basis of remaining energy, packet forwarding ratio, and throughput.
