Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are quickly gaining popularity due to the fact that they are potentially low-cost solutions that can be used in a variety of application areas. However, they are highly susceptible to attacks and it is very probable that an intruder catches already existing security measures out. AWISSENET (ad-hoc personal area network & wireless sensor secure network) is a project funded by the European Union Information and Communication Technologies Program that is focused on security and resilience across ad-hoc personal area networks and wireless sensor networks, and provides a security toolbox for trusted route selection, secure service discovery and intrusion detection. This paper deals with intrusion detection systems for WSNs and how it is used in the AWISSENET project.
