Abstract: Wireless sensor network (WSN) have diverse field of application, but it is very much prone to the security threats. The different types of security attack which limits its application in various unsecure environments are sink Hole Attack, Sybil attack, wormhole attack, node replication attack etc. Any security measures need to provide four basic requirements that are Confidentiality, Integrity, Authentication and Availability (CIAA). This paper focuses on the study of security threats to the WSN and based on that threats paper proposes a novel security solution using a mobile agent technology.
