Border surveillance systems have recently came into attention to address the concerns about national security. Conventional border surveillance or petrol systems consist of check points and border troops. The existing system for surveillance suffers from intensive human involvement. The recent technology is expensive as it requires using high-tech devices e.g. Unmanned aerial vehicles, unattended ground sensors, and surveillance towers equipped with Radar and camera sensors. These techniques suffer with problems such as high false alarm rate and for communication line of sight is necessary. In such surveillance system wireless sensor network is cost effective and efficient for event detection in the large area with multi hope communications. Using Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) the task of object tracking or event detection has been investigated but not much attention was given to secure the border. In this paper the security analysis and an attacker model for the scenario of secure border surveillance with the internal attacker identification methods and some simulation results will be given
