Grouping Applications for Appropriate Security Provision in WSN

Muhammad Zahir Shah, Aftab Alam, and Gohar Ali

Abstract—Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are gaining popularity due to their increasing use in different fields ranging from battlefield monitoring to healthcare services. WSNs are facing serious security challenges primarily due to insecure medium and unattended operations in hostile environments. Extensive studies in this regard have been done to secure WSN through different techniques. In this paper we argue that not all applications require same level of security for their proper operations, since applications do not face same level of hostile environment and motivation of attackers. In response we propose to group the applications according to security requirements which will enable researchers to better understand security issues and develop solutions as per requirements of the application and interests of an attacker.

Index Terms—BROSK, elliptic curve cryptography, LEAP, public key cryptography, sensor node, trusted Server.
