This paper presents a Fault Tolerant Secure Routing scheme (FTSR-MSN) for cluster based Mobile Sensor Networks. Mobility in sensor networks has not only expanded the role of sensor networks but has also given a whole new dimension to all research areas. Extra vigilance and unique approaches are required to address the concerns raised due to mobility. Therefore, we present a secure routing scheme that also takes into account the factor of mobility along with the Hop Count for creating multiple paths to destination, thus providing a fail-safe mechanism for data delivery. The proposed scheme is not only secure against various proposed threat models but also provides reliability and fault tolerance in MSN.
