A wireless sensor network is a spatially distributed collection of wireless sensors where each sensor is having their own memory and processing power. But these sensors are limited in processing power, energy and storage. Main purpose of using these sensors is that to monitor physical or environmental conditions, such as temperature, sound, pressure and to collectively send to a particular location. Due to limited energy resources in WSN, aggregation of data from multiple sensor nodes done at the aggregating node. Aggregating node or Cluster Head is a node collects all the information and aggregates the data. That data will be forwarded to the base station however such aggregation is known to be highly vulnerable to variety of attacks. Since WSN are usually unattended they are highly vulnerable to many types of attacks. Thus, achieving trustworthiness of data and reputation of sensor nodes is very crucial for WSN. We introduce profile based misbehavior node elimination in wireless sensor network. After selecting the cluster head, nodes will send the data to Cluster head. Cluster head will check all the node’s data whether the data is caused by false information. This is a process which is done by Profile based data collection. CH will be comparing all the sensor’s data with it’s neighboring node. If any sensor’s data show false information, that sensor is considered as malicious node and CH will eliminate that node.
