Wireless sensor networks have become a technology for the new millennium with the endless possibilities for applications ranging from academic to military. These tiny sensors are deployed in open environments, where security for data or hardware cannot be guaranteed. Unfortunately due to the resource constraints, traditional security schemes cannot be applied. Therefore designing protocols that can operate securely using smart inherent features is the best option. In this paper, an efficient way of detecting an intruder using Honeypot and swarm intelligence is proposed. The Honeypot architecture strategically enables agents to track the intruders. This process of locating an intruder reduces the false alarm detection rate caused by denial-of-service attacks. A detailed analysis of the attack is captured to predict future attacks using pattern recognition. The proposed framework is evaluated based on accuracy and speed of intruder detection before the network is compromised. This process of detecting the intruder earlier helps learn his/her future attacks, but also a defensive countermeasure.
