Security in wireless sensor networks is critical due to its way of open communication. Local monitoring is one of the powerful technique to secure the data and detect various malicious activities. In local monitoring, neighbour nodes observe the communication between current sender, current receiver and next hop receiver to detect the malicious activity. To make sensors power efficient, sleep-wake scheduling algorithms along with local monitoring are suggested in literature. Solutions in the literature do not address the problem if source node is malicious and do not consider unnecessary wake up of the nodes as malicious activity. This paper tries to achieve without assuming source node as honest and considers unnecessary wake up of the node as a malicious activity. Simulated the algorithm in NS-2 and performance analysis is discussed. Even with additional checks applied to detect malicious activities, analytical results show no degradation in the performance.
