Abstract: Security issue in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is a major problem while dealing with WSNs. Therefore, WSNs are susceptible to various kinds of safety assaults. The restricted capability of sensor nodes is one reason for attacks in sensor networks. In WSNs, on the network layer, there are different kinds of safety attack detection methods. There are also many severe limitations in sensor nodes such as energy efficiency, reliability, scalability that affect WSN safety. As sensor nodes have restricted ability for the majority of the limitations, a selective forwarding attack in the networks is hard to identify. In selective forwarding attack, malicious nodes function as a ordinary nodes. However, it tries to find and crash messages prior to forwarding the packet to further nodes. For keeping this sort of attack aside from networks, we suggest a multi-layer strategy, Selective Forwarding Detection (SFD) that maintains the safe transmission of information among sensor nodes at the same time as detecting the selective forwarding attack. In addition, energy efficiency, reliability and scalability are part of the approach.
