Abstract: The mobile wireless sensor networks (MWSNs) commonly operate in hostile environments such as battlefields and surveillance zones. Owing to their operating nature, MWSNs are often unattended and generally are not equipped with tamper-resistant tools. Because of the mobility of the nodes in MWSN, this is more vulnerable than static WSNs. The node replication attacks are one of the most insidious attacks in sensor networks. The attack can be the foundation of many attacks. In order to detect and prevent this attack, many methods have been proposed. Although several countermeasures exist, almost all practical schemes assume a stationary network model where sensor nodes are fixed and immobile so they are not suitable for MWSNs. In this article, we intend to consider several node replication attacks detection methods in MWSNs that they use different strategies to detect, and we compare them according to some parameters such as memory overhead and communication overhead.
