With the recent advancements in and popularity of wireless networks, the security based issues are also increasing considerably. In this paper, we look at the data security and situational security vulnerabilities in the communication network for fishermen at sea being developed by our research center. We are proposing certain solutions and algorithms for avoiding some of the situations. They are Adaptive Contextaware Transmission Power Control (ACTPC) as a proposed solution for preventing unauthorized users at the maritime border, along with border alert and distress alert. The algorithms are implemented using a network of MICAz motes.
