Abstract: Local monitoring is the one of the powerful technique for improving the security in multihope Wireless Sensor Network (WSN).Although it is a good technique for security purpose in WSN but it has a major drawback that it is costly in terms of energy consumption which make overhead for the energy constrained system such as WSN. In WSN environment, the scarce power resources are typically addressed through sleep-wake scheduling of nodes but sleep-wake technique is vulnerable even to simple attacks .In this paper a new technique is proposed that is not only energy efficient but also a secure technique which combine the sleep wake up scheduling with local monitoring which we call the OD –AEELMO (On Demand Agent Based Energy Efficient Local Monitoring ).it enables sleep- wake management in secure manner even in face of adversarial nodes that choose not to awaken nodes responsible for monitoring their traffic.
Keywords: Sensor networks, local monitoring, sleep/wake techniques, malicious node.
