Beschreibung

This book discusses fundamental security issues in wireless sensor networks, techniques for the protection of such networks, as well as results from recent studies in wireless sensor network security.

The recent technological advances have made it possible to deploy small, l- power, low-bandwidth, and multi-functional wireless sensor nodes to monitor and report the conditions and events in their local environments. A large collection of these sensor nodes can thus form a wireless sensor network in an ad hoc manner, creating a new type of information systems. Such sensor networks have recently emerged as an important means to study and interact with the physical world and have received a lot of attention due to their wide applications in military and civilian operations such as target tracking and data acquisition. However, in many of these applications, wireless sensor networks could be deployed in hostile environments where there are malicious attacks against the network. Providing security services in sensor networks, however, turns out to be a very challenging task. First, sensor nodes usually have limited resources such as storage, bandwidth, computation and energy. It is often undesirable to implement expensive algorithms (e. g. , frequent public key operations) on sensor nodes. Second, sensor nodes are usually deployed unattended and built without compromise prevention in mind. An attacker can easily capture and compromise a few sensor nodes without being noticed. When sensor nodes are compromised, the attacker can learn all the secrets stored on them and launch a variety of attacks. Thus, any security mechanism for sensor networks has to be resilient to compromised sensor nodes.

Includes example applications for target tracking, scientific exploration and data acquisition in hazardous environments

Includes a fairly new study on capabilities of mu-TESLA, a broadcast authentication technique for wireless sensor networks

Includes investigation to enhance the security of location discovery in sensor networks



Klappentext

Wireless sensor networks have recently received a high level of attention due to their wide applications in military and civilian operations.

Security for Wireless Sensor Networks discusses fundamental security issues in wireless sensor networks, techniques for the protection of such networks, as well as results from recent studies in wireless sensor network security. This volume assists both professionals and students to understand background knowledge in wireless sensor network security and prepare them for producing research in this domain.

Security for Wireless Sensor Networks is designed for a professional audience composed of researchers and practitioners in industry. This book is also suitable as a secondary text for graduate-level students in computer science.
