TinySA: a security architecture for wireless sensor networks

  title={TinySA: a security architecture for wireless sensor networks},
  author={Johann Gro\sssch{\"a}dl},
This paper presents the design and rationale of TinySA, a lightweight security architecture for wireless sensor networks and so-called "smart dust" running the TinyOS operating system. TinySA consists of a suite of security protocols and cryptographic primitives to ensure confidentiality, integrity and authenticity of communication in a sensor network. An integral part of TinySA is a highly optimized elliptic curve cryptosystem, which has been developed from scratch to comply with the extremely… CONTINUE READING
