WSN has been exhilarated in many application areas such as military, medical, environment, etc. Due to the rapid increase in applications, it causes proportionality to security threats because of its wireless communication. Since nodes used are supposed to be independent of human reach and dependent on their limited resources, the major challenges can be framed as energy consumption and resource reliability. Ensuring security, integrity, and confidentiality of the transmitted data is a major concern for WSN. Due to the limitation of resources in the sensor nodes, the traditionally intensive security mechanism is not feasible for WSNs. This limitation brought the concept of digital watermarking in existence. Watermarking is an effective way to provide security, integrity, data aggregation and robustness in WSN. In this paper, several issues and challenges, as well as the various threats of WMSN, is briefly discussed. Also, we have discussed the digital watermarking techniques and its role in WMSN.
