Part of the Risk Engineering book series (RISK)


WSN are exposed to variety of attacks as other networks. Quality and complexity of attacks are rising day by day. The proposed work aim at showing how complexity of modern attacks is growing accordingly, converging to usher resistant methods also to rise. Limitations in computation and battery power in sensor nodes gives constrain to diversity of security mechanisms.
