Wireless sensor networks are vulnerable to an adversary due to scarce resources and wireless communication. An adversary can compromise a sensor node and launch a variety of attacks such as false report injection attacks. This attack may cause monetary damage resulting in energy drain by forwarding the false reports and false alarms at the base station. In order to address this problem, a number of en-route filtering schemes has been proposed. Notably, a dynamic en-route filtering scheme can save energy by filtering of the false report. In the key dissemination phase of the existing scheme, the nodes closer to the source node may not have matching keys to detect the false report. Therefore, continuous attacks may result in unnecessary energy wastage. In this paper, we propose a key re-distribution scheme to solve this issue. The proposed scheme early detects the false report injection attacks using initially assigned secret keys in the phase of the key pre-distribution. The experimental results demonstrate the validity of our scheme with energy efficiency of up to 26.63% and filtering capacity up to 15.92% as compared to the existing scheme.
