Secure data aggregation for wireless sensor network
MetadataShow full item record
Like conventional networks, security is also a big concern in wireless sensor networks. However, security in this type of networks faces not only typical but also new challenges. Constrained devices, changing topology or susceptibility to unprecedented security threats such as node capture and node compromise has refrained developers from applying conventional security solutions into wireless sensor networks. Hence, developing security solutions for wireless sensor networks not only requires well security analysis but also offers a low power and processing consuming.In this thesis, we implemented security solution targeting IRIS sensor motes. In our implementation, a public key-based key exchange is used to establish shared secret keys between sensor nodes. These secret keys are used to provide authenticity, integrity and freshness for transmission data. Our implementation ensures the flexibility in integrating our solution with available TinyOS operating system. Additionally, the thesis work also focuses on evaluating the performance in wireless sensor networks both in memory and energy consuming.
