The wireless sensor networks are subjected to threats and highly vulnerable to various attacks due to the sensor characteristics, such as the openness of wireless communication channels, lack of infrastructure, and physical discloser. Sensor networks are highly susceptible to denial of service (DoS) attacks due to their inherent characteristics. Sinkhole attack is well-known routing attack in which a malicious node prevents sensed data from forwarding toward the base station. In this paper, we propose a method that can avoid the sinkhole attack for safe data transmission in sensor networks that uses optimal path selection using genetic algorithm based routing. The proposed method selects the optimal paths to transmit the sensed data and guarantees reliable data transmission. In simulation, our proposed method is compared with GRAM. The simulation results show that the proposed method is efficient in both the energy consumption and success ratio of the delivery.
