Abstract: Research in wireless networks and communication protocols have reached new heights in recent times with the advent of state-of-the-art communication techniques and gadgets. They have found widespread utility in recent times especially with the advent of cloud computing and internet of things (IoT). IoTs offer immense potential in today's scenario aiding in smart computing and automation of things focused to making life of consumers easier and simpler. However, security of information transmitted and received over wireless networks is an essential concern to preserve privacy and authenticity of information. This research issue is however quite complex as it involves security of bulk information quite private and confidential to be delivered in a wireless medium prone to hackers. This research article has investigated the various issues related to security of IoT-based wireless sensor networks and proposed a fuzzy-based clustering algorithm to effectively detect an intrusion and make the information secure.

Keywords: wireless sensor networks; intrusion detection systems; internet of things; IoT; fuzzy clustering.
