Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) comprises of several tiny devices, low-cost, low-power and sensor nodes. This node has distinctive nature unlike from other networks. It includes a huge amount of small sensing devices with some limitation in energy, computation, and communication capabilities. These sensing devices are designed for specific applications, and they interact directly with their physical environments. The applications of WSNs are abundant; many of them are even security critical such as military or security applications. However, strong security practice should be deployed to secure the network from various attacks. The prevention-based approach such as key cryptographic and authentication has been implemented to secure the network from malicious activities. Yet, these techniques will not secure the computer or network system from insider attacks which leads to extract some sensitive information. As the result, intrusion detection turns into a crucial second layer to protect and keep the network secure from any malicious attack. The aim of this paper to provide a detailed review about the characteristics and vulnerabilities of WSN. Alongside, we highlighted the use of IDS framework to protect the network security.
