Abstract: The design of topology of wireless sensor networks is critical aspect in real world networks. Configuring the network topology according the attacks of the network is the solution to several node based attacks. To counter those attacks, an approach is proposed for wireless sensor networks. We propose to use networks that are free to scale and configurable according to the priority of the node. The parameters like throughput, efficiency, load balance should be exploited to make sure the connectivity of the network. The node based attacks concentrating on functional nodes in the network should be addressed and transmission of data should not be halted even after multiple attacks. The robust network should be built by applying the strategies to counter the node failures and connectivity of the network remain unaffected.
