Because of the limited computation capability as well as transmissions being broadcasted in a wireless sensor network (WSN) they are supposed to be more susceptible for attacks related to the security. As present wireless sensor networks have low-power constraints as well as increased complexity, thus for nodes’ performance analysis related to the embedded software and network simulation efficient approaches are required. Additionally, as these networks are used to deal with the sensitive information and operated in the adverse unattended environments, thus, security feature must be added in most of these wireless sensor networks. In this paper a novel scheme for detecting various sinkhole nodes for wireless sensor network (WSN). The results of this proposed scheme show the 1.75% fake positive rate and 96% of detection rate. In comparison to the previous schemes, these aspects are considerably better. In addition to these aspects, our scheme also achieves the communication as well as computational efficiencies. As a result of which, this proposed scheme proved to have better results in many applications.
