Protecting networks against different types of attacks is one of most important posed issue into the network and information security domains. This problem on Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), in attention to their special properties, has more importance. Now, there are some of proposed solutions to protect Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) against different types of intrusions; but no one of them has a comprehensive view to this problem and they are usually designed in single-purpose; but, the proposed design in this paper has been a comprehensive view to this issue by presenting a complete architecture of Intrusion Detection System (IDS). The main contribution of this architecture is its modularity and flexibility; i.e. it is designed and applicable, in four steps on intrusion detection process, consistent to the application domain and its required security level. Focus of this paper is on the heterogeneous WSNs and network-based IDS, by designing and deploying the Wireless Sensor Network wide level Intrusion Detection System (WSNIDS) on the base station (sink). Finally, this paper has been designed a questionnaire to verify its idea, by using the acquired results from analyzing the questionnaires.
