  abstract  = {Developments in communication technologies
especially in wireless have enabled the progress of low-cost and lowpower
wireless sensor networks (WSNs). The features of such WSN
are holding minimal energy, weak computational capabilities,
wireless communication and an open-medium nature where sensors
are deployed. WSN is underpinned by application driven such as
military applications, the health sector, etc. Due to the intrinsic nature
of the network and application scenario, WSNs are vulnerable to
many attacks externally and internally. In this paper we have focused
on the types of internal attacks of WSNs based on OSI model and
discussed some security requirements, characterizers and challenges
of WSNs, by which to contribute to the WSN-s security research.},
