Many obstacles impede the successful deployment of sensor networks. In addition to the limited resources issue, security is a major concern especially for applications such as home security monitoring, military, and battle field applications. In this paper we present a defense mechanism against wormhole attacks in wireless sensor networks. Specifically, a simple routing tree protocol is proposed and shown to be effective in defending against wormhole attacks through ns-2 simulations.
