Wireless sensor networks comprise a set of autonomous sensor nodes, commonly used for data gathering and tracking applications. Node localization and intrusion detection are considered as the major design issue in WSN. Therefore, this paper presents a new multi-objective manta ray foraging optimization (MRFO) based node localization with intrusion detection (MOMRFO-NLID) technique for WSN. The goal of the MOMRFO-NLID technique is to optimally localize the unknown nodes and determine the existence of intrusions in the network. The MOMRFO-NLID technique encompasses two major stages namely MRFO based localization of nodes and optimal Siamese Neural Network (OSNN) based intrusion detection. The OSNN technique involves the hyperparameter tuning of the traditional SNN using the MRFO algorithm and consequently increases the detection rate. In order to assess the enhanced performance of the MOMRFO-NLID technique, a series of simulations take place and the results reported superior performance compared to existing techniques interms of distinct evaluation parameters.
