Anlytical study based on issues of Routing & Security in Wireless sensor networks

Ashish Bagwari, Menka Goswami, Anil Kumar


Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are receiving significant importance in the present scenario owing to their unlimited potential and world wide applications. The routes in the network are determined by the most secured and energy efficient routing protocols and these energy efficient routing protocols employed for WSNs are the Hierarchical or cluster based routing protocols that are essential for path computation in sensor networks. Since most of the hierarchical routing protocols aim to be developed as energy efficient, the security issues are not given much importance most of the times. But in certain applications such as military or battle field the data is to be maintained secret while communicating between sensor nodes and basin so security issues are also required to be focused in developing routing protocols. Keeping in view above in this paper we intend to present the various security issues involved while designing the hierarchical routing protocol for a specific WSN and the design challenges while studying different hierarchical based routing protocols.

Keywords- Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), Hierarchical routing, Securityissues.
