Node Compromise Detection (NCD) is an important requirement for dealing with potential attacks in regular and random deployment in Wireless Sensor Networks. Intrusion Detection method is proposed to detect the compromised nodes. We proposed Parameter Grouping (PG) model for compromised nodes. We reduced communication overhead , attestation overhead, false negatives and energy consumption when compared with existing methods, like ZoneTrust. An NS-2 based simulation work was carried out and found that the proposed PG model detects compromised nodes effectively.
