Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is susceptible to various kinds of security attacks such as the misdirection attack. Detection of misdirection attack in WSN is a difficult job. The malicious node misdirects the arriving packets to a node other than the purposive node in the path from the source to the destination. Consequently, it introduces high end- to- end delay in the network. A novel technique for detection of misdirection attack in WSN without using cluster heads is proposed in the paper. The proposed detection technique has been implemented using Omnetpp 5.4.1 on four different network scenarios (10, 20, 30, and 40 numbers of nodes) and varying number of malicious nodes. The results of simulation shows that the proposed technique delivers better detection rate with reduced end- to- end delay compared to the detection method which uses cluster heads.
