An Efficient Concealed Data Aggregation Scheme for Wireless Sensor Networks

  title={An Efficient Concealed Data Aggregation Scheme for Wireless Sensor Networks},
  author={Gwoboa Horng and Chien-Lung Wang and Tzungher Chen},
Soon after wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have attracted much attention both in industry and academia, maintaining the security of WSNs, especially end-to-end confidentiality, becomes a challenging problem. A sensor device has the limited computation capability, battery power, less memory size, and unreliable communication protocols. In order to save the overall energy resources and maintain the security of WSN, we need to reduce the amount of encrypted data transmitted. One approach is to…

This work presents a protocol that provides a secure aggregation mechanism for wireless networks that is resilient to both intruder devices and single device key compromises, and takes advantage of the properties of wireless networking, as well as the power asymmetry between the devices and the base station.
SecureDAV: a secure data aggregation and verification protocol for sensor networks
This paper presents a protocol for establishing cluster keys in sensor networks using verifiable secret sharing using elliptic curve cryptosystems and develops a secure data aggregation and verification protocol that ensures that the base station never accepts faulty aggregate readings.
Concealed Data Aggregation for Reverse Multicast Traffic in Sensor Networks: Encryption, Key Distribution, and Routing Adaptation
An approach that conceals sensed data end-to-end by still providing efficient and flexible in-network data aggregation is presented and it is shown that the approach is feasible for the class of "going down" routing protocols.
Efficient Secure Aggregation in Sensor Networks
A secure data aggregation protocol for sensor networks that uses encryption for confidentiality, but without requiring decryption at intermediate nodes is presented, using two-hop pairwise keys to provide integrity while minimizing the communication required between the base station and sensor nodes.
How public key cryptography influences wireless sensor node lifetime
The results show that the application of strong cryptography is feasible and the influence to the lifetime is not significant, Nevertheless, the public key cryptography shall be used with care.
Sensor Network Security: More Interesting Than You Think
This position paper takes the first steps towards producing a comprehensive security model that is tailored for sensor networks, and outlines security properties that must be considered when designing a secure sensor network.
Secure hierarchical in-network aggregation in sensor networks
This work presents the first algorithm for provably secure hierarchical in-network data aggregation, and is guaranteed to detect any manipulation of the aggregate by the adversary beyond what is achievable through direct injection of data values at compromised nodes.
