Various attacks observed in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) result in limiting or spoiling the ability of the networks in carrying out the expected work. WSNs have finite resources, can be deployable in uncontrollable environments and can be smoothly accessed by an intruder or rather attacker. When an attacker attacks a network layer, it can also affect the other layers. In suggested algorithm, local sensor action on many layers is supervised and evaluated to detect the possible attacker. A general approach of an anomaly-based Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is modified (mIDS). mIDS uses the OTP (One-Time Password) concept, which can find out the presence of the attacker inside the network. The results show that the suggested approach has better end-to-end delay, throughput and packet delivery ratio.


The unique features of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) make the system attractive to be used in hard environments. But the WSNs suffer from a variety of security-related attacks (Christiana et al., 2017). Security is an extremely crucial issue in the case of WSNs. So, a variety of security techniques are used in WSNs, which might be classified as prevention and detection techniques (Ilker and Ali, 2005; and Yousef et al., 2015). Prevention techniques are used to ensure certain integrity and confidentiality, whereas detection techniques are used to discover the existence of attacker interruption in the network (Rodrigo et al., 2006; and Chung-Huei, 2017).
