With the continuous advances in mobile wireless
sensor networks (MWSNs), the research community has
responded to the challenges and constraints in the design of these
networks by proposing efficient routing protocols that focus on
particular performance metrics such as residual energy utilization,
mobility, topology, scalability, localization, data collection routing,
Quality of Service (QoS), etc. In addition, the introduction of
mobility in WSN has brought new challenges for the routing,
stability, security, and reliability of WSNs. Therefore, in this
article, we present a comprehensive and meticulous investigation
in the routing protocols and security challenges in the theory of
MWSNs which was developed in recent years.
