With the continuous development of the wireless devices technology, securing wireless sensor networks became more and more a significant but also a difficult task. In this paper we present our research for a robust and intelligent algorithm dedicated to the discovery of malfunctioning or attacked sensor nodes. Our strategy is focused on neural network predictors based on past and present values obtained from neighboring nodes. Limited resources in terms of computational power, energy, memory and bandwidth impose heavy constraints on functionality of an effective malfunction detection system. For this reason we consider that our algorithm is designed and suitable for execution on the base station level and, by this, it is appropriate even for large-scale sensor networks.
