The security in wireless sensor networks (WSNS) is a very important issue. These networks may be exposed it different attacks. With this in mind, researchers propose in this area variety of security techniques for this purpose, and this article describes security in wireless sensor networks. Discussed threats and attacks of wireless sensor networks. The article also aims to provide the basic information related to determining essential requirements for the protection WSNs. Lastly, we mention some security mechanisms against these threats and attacks in Wireless Sensor Network.
