Objectives: To enhance wireless sensor network security by selecting secure nodes for transmission and eliminating threat nodes from the routing path using Mobile Agent (MA) deployment. Methods: Smart Mobile Agents (SMAs) executes three different functionalities such as data gathering, transmission, and behavior monitoring, each of which is incorporated to Mobile Collector, Dispatcher, and Scrutinizing Agents respectively. Findings: Simulation results prove that SMA based network improves throughput by 55.56%, minimizes misdetection and disconnection probability by 21.6% and 20% respectively. SMA based network also decreases packet loss by 20%. Improvements: SMA deployed network shows better performance than non-SMA based networks as they are complex while integrating the multiple functionalities as a single task.
Keywords: Dispatcher Agent, Genus Function, Scrutinizing Agent, Smart Mobile Agents - Mobile Collector Agent, Wireless Sensor Networks
