Abstract: In this paper we have worked over the security issues for public key cryptanalysis for wireless network security .We have made an attempt to compare ECC and RSA for WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORKS. We found ECC to have a significant advantage over RSA as it reduces computation time and also the amount of data transmitted and stored. RSA key generation is much more time consuming as it requires the generation of large prime numbers. We also have made an effort to study the behavior of WSNs nodes.
