Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is a large scale network with from dozens to thousands tiny devices. Using fields of WSNs (military, health, smart home e.g.) has a large-scale and its usage areas increasing day by day. Secure issue of WSNs is an important research area and applications of WSN have some big security deficiencies.

Intrusion Detection System is a second-line of the security mechanism for networks, and it is very important to integrity, confidentiality and availability. Intrusion Detection in WSNs is somewhat different from wired and non-energy constraint wireless networkbecause WSN has some constraints influencing cyber security approaches and attack types. This paper is a survey describing attack types of WSNs intrusion detection approaches being against to this attack types.
