Towards Acceptable Public-Key Encryption in Sensor Networks

  title={Towards Acceptable Public-Key Encryption in Sensor Networks},
  author={Erik-Oliver Blass and Martina Zitterbart},
One of the huge problems for security in sensor networks is th e lack of resources. Based on microcontroller architectures with severe limited computing abilities, strong public-key cryptography is commo nly seen as infeasible on sensor devices. In contrast to this prejudice this paper p resents an efficient and lightweight implementation of public-key cryptograph y algorithms relying on elliptic curves. The code is running on Atmels popular 8Bi t ATMEGA128 microcontroller, the heart of the… CONTINUE READING
