Wireless sensor networks are usually deployed in inhospitable environments in order to accomplish a specific mission. As a result, these networks are subject to various numbers of attacks and threats. Therefore, security should be a major aspect that must be taken into account when designing routing protocols for wireless sensor networks. Additionally, sensor nodes have limited resources. Thus, complex routing and security protocols cannot be used. In this paper we provide a survey of secure routing protocols that can be used in wireless sensor networks since it is important to provide a classification of the available protocols. Therefore, several protocols were reviewed in this paper. The routing protocols can be classified into two main categories namely topology based and protocol operation based. The main goal of the work proposed in this paper is to provide researchers with a clear idea about the available security based routing protocols and their properties.
