Hard restrictions in computing power and energy consumption favour symmetric key methods to encrypt the communication in wireless body area networks which in term impose questions on effective and user-friendly unobtrusive ways for key distribution. In this paper, we present a novel approach to establish a secure connection between two devices by shaking(More)
In wireless sensor networks, power consumption is one of the key design issues because a large number of sensor nodes are powered by cheap batteries. Switching the RF transceiver, which is one of the biggest power consumers in a sensor node, to low-power sleep mode as much as possible has been proven to be a very efficient way to save power with a factor of(More)
Massively deployed wireless sensor and actuator networks (WSAN), co-existing with RFID technology, can bring clear benefits to large-scale enterprise systems, by delegating parts of the business functionality closer to the point of action. However, a major impediment in the integration process is represented by the variety of customized WSAN platforms and(More)
An emerging area in ubiquitous computing is networked sensor systems. The typical approach is to connect sensor-actuator devices using classic network infrastructures at a low level. These networks can serve as infrastructures to dynamically integrate, sensors and actuators into complex interactive systems while providing convenient services and interfaces(More)
An appropriate adaption of the decision boundaries of the well-known signal space detector (SSD) yields a detector that whitens the input noise in the detector forward path. This new detector, called a whitening signal space detector (WSSD), offers higher reliability without increasing the dimensionality of the signal space. A WSSD can be designed by(More)
SOA has been one of the most fascinating design paradigms for enterprise-level application software during the recent years. Key to its success has been the inherent support of reusability and scalability. This has brought forward significant advancements in the efficiency of SOA based software during development, deployment and runtime. As a result of the(More)
In this paper, we present a system architecture called Sindrion which allows to create a cheap, energyefficient, wireless control network to integrate small embedded sensors and actuators into one of the most established middleware platforms for distributed semantic services, namely Universal Plug and Play (UPnP). To meet rigid constraints regarding cost(More)
In this paper we present a signal processing methodology for sharing symmetric keys in personal area networks. Symmetric encryption and decryption are commonly used because of limitations in computing power and energy consumption. However, key sharing still imposes challenges regarding usability, computational complexity of algebraic key exchange(More)
