Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) plays a vital
role in emerging sensing technology. They are used in
various fields such as military operations, healthcare
applications, traffic control, and home applications. Even
sensor can monitor, pressure, humidity, noise level,
temperature, soil makeup and other properties. Wireless
Sensor Network can be of consist of different types of
sensors like thermal, visual, infrared, acoustic and radar.
Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is broadcast nature
of the wireless communication so it becomes easy for the
attacker to send false data or false information to
compromise the entire network due to which there are
high chances that causes problem in making decision.
Here the solution proposed is MAC (Message
Authentication Code), Authentication is necessary for
many administrative tasks informally; data
authentication allows a receiver to verify that the data
really is sent by the claimed sender. If the message is from
claimed sender then the message or information is
accepted or if the message is from not from the claimed
sender then the message or information is not accepted.
