Efficient Implementation of Elliptic Curve Cryptography for Wireless Sensor Networks

One of the huge problems for security in sensor networks is the lack of resources. Typical sensor nodes such as the quite popular MICA and MICA2 Motes from UC Berkeley [1] are based on a microcontroller architecture with only a few KBytes of memory and severe limited computing ability. Strong publickey cryptography is therefore commonly seen as infeasible… CONTINUE READING
