Objectives: To enhance wireless sensor network security by selecting secure nodes for transmission and eliminating threat nodes from the routing path using Mobile Agent (MA) deployment. Methods: Smart Mobile Agents (SMAs) executes three different functionalities such as data gathering, transmission, and behavior monitoring, each of which is incorporated to Mobile Collector, Dispatcher, and Scrutinizing Agents respectively. Findings: Simulation results prove that SMA based network improves

Improvements: SMA deployed network shows better performance than non-SMA based networks as they are complex while integrating the multiple functionalities as a single task.
