Abstract

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are widely used in various environments in monitoring temperature, motion, sound, and vibration. These applications often include the detection of sensitive information from enemy movements in hostile areas or in locations of personnel in buildings. Due to characteristics of WSNs, nodes tend to be exposed to the enemy, and security is a major concern in WSNs. Many researchers have developed various security protocols. However, there is no research paper describing and analyzing security models in WSNs by using a standard notation such as The Unified Modeling Language (UML). Using the UML helps security developers to analyze security attacks and design secure WSNs. In this research, we provide standard models for security attacks by UML Sequence Diagrams to describe and analyze possible attacks in a network and transport layer.
