Background/Objectives: Mobile sensor nodes are the key prerequisite for many ecological and non-attended applications of Wireless Sensor Networks. The key objective of this work is to extend the security of roaming nodes to attain the secure routing in WSN. Methods/Statistical analysis: Mobility of sensor nodes upsurges security disputes in WSNs and correspondingly it issusceptible to several types ofattacks. We have incorporated the prominentkey distribution tactics like key pre-distribution, hierarchical key management schemes, pair-wise key agreement and group key based key agreement in proposed secure framework. Findings: Active wireless sensor network have two utmost issues namely the authentication of mobile nodes and security in communication by means of key distribution. Till the time, many WSN’s security practitioners and researchers deliberated about security in WSN in the static environment. Although the schemes available in the literature are secure and effective, they are not adequate for secure roaming WSN’s scenario. In this article, we have recommended a hybrid novel perspective of secure routing in WSN. The proposed scheme has been exceedingly effective under dynamic environment and accomplishes significant improvement than existing system in terms of packet delivery ratio, and normalized routing overhead by achieving efficient energy usage. Applications/Improvements: We use this novel standard for evaluating the performance of existing traditional secure routing tactics and the proposed secure routing mechanism in static as well as dynamic scenario for several number of wireless sensor nodes. The results deliberated in the last section of this article depicts that the proposed framework for secure routing in WSN is adequatelyappropriate and precise for dynamic WSN applications.
