Presently, wireless sensor network localization algorithms attracted various researchers toward research study and experiments . The location of nodes can be determined by various localization algorithms. These wireless sensor network localization algorithms are vulnerable and can be compromised for their security. There are various network security attacks like wormhole, impersonation, compromise, and duplicate attacks which degrade the performance of WSNs. In this research paper, under various network security attacks, we have tested wireless sensor network localization algorithms under certain performance matrices like mobility of WSN node’s, size of packets, temperature, and node density to find out the compromised WSN node’s residual energy. The simulation result shows how these localization algorithms are vulnerable to network security attacks.
