FleGSens - secure area monitoring using wireless sensor networks

  title={FleGSens - secure area monitoring using wireless sensor networks},
  author={Peter Rothenpieler and Daniel Kruger and Dennis Pfisterer and Stefan Fischer and Denise Dudek and Christian Haas and Martina Zitterbart},
In the project FleGSens, a wireless sensor network (WSN) for the surveillance of critical areas and properties is currently developed which incorporates mechanisms to ensure information security. The intended prototype consists of 200 sensor nodes for monitoring a 500m long land strip. The system is focused on ensuring integrity and authenticity of generated alarms and availability in the presence of an attacker who may even compromise a limited number of sensor nodes. In this paper, two of the…
