Abstract: Wireless sensor networks (WSN) is tending towards becoming a complete solution in communication protocols, embedded systems and low-power implementations. However, the resource constraints which includes, limited communication range, limited energy, limited computing power, limited bandwidth and the fear of intruders have limited the WSN applications. Since lightweight computational nodes that are currently being used in WSN pose particular challenge for many security applications, the whole research therefore, is the investigation of new security techniques and appropriate implementation for WSN nodes, including various trade-offs such as implementation complexity, security flexibility, power dissipation, and scalability. The goal of this research is to develop a scheme to control the flow through the components of the WSN. This allows to improving the security of WSN by the good management of energy resources, as well as the local management of communications. In this sense, we proposed an improvement of the reactive AODV Routing Protocol  under the NS2 Simulator for the security support always as part of Quality of Service.
