We are aware that the power limitation is a critical issue for the sensor nodes, so different scheme or algorithm was proposed to implement the routing protocols to expand the minimum power utilize the maximum work [1,2].But it is unfortunate that most of them are not security concerned. As we know that the wsn is used for military purpose mainly so fulfilling privacy and security requirements in an appropriate architecture for WSNs offering pervasive services is essential for acceptance. Though prolonged lifetime may help the sensor network to work for several year without change the battery of the nodes but still it is the security that is most needed. If an attacker may hack the information of the network then prolonged lifetime have no importance to the network as longer the lifetime of the network more information will be hacked. In this paper we will discuss some internal and external security aspects that the routing protocols have faced and different solutions to make the protocols secure as well as prolonged life time concerns.
