Abstract : The development of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) used in various industrial applications and remote monitoring has been motivated from the military applications such as battlefield surveillance. The wireless sensor networks contains a group of sensors which monitor or sense several physical parameters like temperature, pressure, moisture content, etc., and pass the data through the network wirelessly to other sensors or to a remote location without being lost or being eavesdropped. WSNs for landslide monitoring are deployed by our research center in some areas of the Western Ghats and another location in the north eastern India which are prone to landslide due to heavy rainfall. The landslide research work includes various sensors for sensing and monitoring the parameters which may lead to landslide, which is one of the natural calamities that can cause several life losses. The sensor values at the landslide prone area are monitored in the data management center, which is situated several kilometers away from the sensors. The paper focus on the architecture of the landslide project, the security threats faced in real world applications, and how they can be resolved.
