HOW TO TRANSMIT MESSAGES VIA WSN IN A HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT

Marek Klonowski, Michał Koza, Mirisosław Kutyłowski

Abstract

In this paper we present a scheme for secure message transmission in WSN in the presence of an adversary. We assume that the adversary can easily find \emph{some random} nodes. However it is much harder for it to find all of them (or even a concrete subset) quickly. Security of the proposed scheme is based on this practical assumption. The protocol can be easily combined with various routing schemes as a security layer preserving all merits of the underlying protocol for the price of reasonable communicational and storage overhead.
