In the development of the computer networks Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) plays an important role. In recent time, there are many out-of-doors applications like medical and military examination in which wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have been generally used. Therefore it is important to give surety up to the required level of security. Due to some weaknesses like limited processing capability, memory, and because of the broadcast transmission medium Wireless Sensor Networks are mostly susceptible to Denial of Service attacks like jamming and flooding. Since sensor nodes are very resource controlled so security is one of the primary issues in sensor networks. In this paper, we have done comparative analysis of flooding and jamming attack in wireless sensor networks using NS2 simulator. In analysis we found that jamming attacks are harder to detect as compared to flooding attacks because jamming attacks targets or jams a particular region or area.
