Wireless sensor networks are often used in applications where message confidentiality, integrity, and authentication are required. Cryptography is a common mechanism for meeting these security requirements. The use of cryptography requires that nodes share secret keys, which are typically assigned to each node according to key distribution schemes. Given a key distribution, there is currently no design metric for evaluating vulnerability to key exposure. In this work, we introduce a metric for… CONTINUE READING
