Abstract: Due to encroachment of software and hardware developed and its technology a feasible network can be composed of small, inexpensive sensor with several attributes. Security is one of major concern for wireless sensor networks (WSN) because of lots of their critical applications. This paper describes the security attacks and its prerequisite and vulnerability for processing and collecting the information in WSN.
Keywords: Security attacks, Wireless sensor network, Requirements and Vulnerabilities.
