Abstract: In modern time, Mobile Wireless Sensor Networks (MWSN) technology has gained tremendous popularity and is widely used in various applications. MWSN is a temporary network designed for a specific purpose. The dynamic nature of these networks makes them more usable in different fields. The autonomous systems of these wireless mobile nodes can be established anytime, anywhere. However, due to its high mobility, lack of centralized authority and the nature of open media, MWSN is more vulnerable to a variety of security threats and hence more vulnerable to security issues than traditional Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). MWNs are extremely vulnerable to various types of threats, which will greatly reduce network performance in different situations. In this article, we first provide the general description about MWSN along with its component used and then reviewed the well-known work done by various researchers to detect distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS). The review thoroughly identified different aspects of the proposed methodology. In addition, we also provide comparative analysis of various analyzed parameters that are examined to determine the effectiveness of the designed protection network against DDoS attack.
