Secured Data Aggregation Scheduling in Ubiquitous sensor networks is a major research problem nowadays. Since the sensors communicate wirelessly, they are exposed to a high level of vulnerability from the intruders. Quantum key distribution is a technique that is used nowadays for providing security. Though the secure keys are used for short distances only, it offers many advantages over traditional methods in providing security. Quantum key distribution adopts many methods like entanglement swapping and quantum teleportation. Reversible logic gates like CNOT, Toffoli, and Fredkin are proved to offer many advantages in quantum computing. Also a very little research is carried to provide security to the nodes in ubiquitous sensor networks using quantum cryptography so as to maximize the throughput and utilize the hardware resources effectively. Hence in this paper, we propose an intrusion detection policy for security to sensor nodes using quantum cryptography. The proposed protocol monitors the communication between sensor nodes and uses a simple policy to detect the malicious nodes. In our detection policy we adopted an EPR-pair allocation scheme in terms of the quantum gates like Toffoli and Feynman called SwapGate.
