|Project Description: ||A Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) consists of autonomous sensor devices that
are used to monitor physical and environmental conditions like temperature, pressure etc.
The WSN is built of hundreds and thousands of detection stations called nodes, where
each node consists of one or more sensors. Each WSN consists of a radio transceiver, an
internal/external antenna, a microcontroller and a battery. Wireless sensor networks are
the networks that are used to communicate by sensing the behavioral changes and the
sensing nodes will collect the data and it will get processed. After data processing, the
data will be communicated to the receiver.
There are some organizations that are having very important necessity of wireless
networks in organizations such as military, ecology and health. In these kinds of
organizations, the wireless sensor networks have to be secured from network attacks
especially at unfriendly situations because data can easily be attacked by the attackers.
There are also some security protocols being implemented in sensor networks. There are
some limitations in a wireless sensor network like they have limited storage capacity,
limited capability of processing and limited energy to transmit data. These drawbacks can
make wireless sensor network different from other networks. The simulation of the
attacks are done in the NS2 simulator. By simulating, the performance of the network can
