Secure Key Management Protocol in the Wireless Sensor Network


To achieve security in wireless sensor networks (WSN), it is important to be able to encrypt messages sent among sensor nodes. We propose a new cryptographic key management protocol, which is based on the clustering scheme but does not depend on the probabilistic key. The protocol can increase the efficiency to manage keys since, before distributing the keys by bootstrap, the use of public keys shared among nodes can eliminate the processes to send or to receive keys among the sensors. Also, to find any compromised nodes safely on the network, it solves safety problems by applying the functions of a lightweight attack-detection mechanism.
