The paper describes the important problem of underwater surveillance which causes the stable development of distributed sensor network systems and their efficiency. Countermeasures objectives for underwater sensor network systems and their safety providing are considered. Different types of attack against underwater acoustic sensor and communication networks as well as security aspects are discussed. The unique characteristics of the underwater networks which differ from wireless groundbased networks are specified. The necessity of fight methods creation regarding underwater networks as entire formations that use acoustic communication is stated in the conclusion. Another statement is the necessity of finding security measures for such systems due to the methods given in the paper.
