Application of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) in many fields has achieved a significant advances, many research can be seen in military, industrial control surveillance, and bush fire and wild habitant monitoring, However, it is a bit too early to claim the application of WSN in the domain of Medicine and Healthcare (M&HC) a big success. The major obstacle is the concern raised by the users that how secure the collected data is stored or transmitted over the underlying WSN and how to protect privacy while taking advantage of the technology. In this paper, a sensible solution is proposed to improve the security by augmenting the IEEE 802.15.4 standard with intrusion detection and counterattack mechanism.
