 Data Authentication : Data authentication allows a receiver to verify that the data really was sent by the clai ed sender. .REQUIREMENTS FOR SENSOR NETWORK SECURITY  Data Confidentiality : A sensor network should not leak sensor readings to neighboring networks.

. Data Integrity: Data integrity ensures the receiver that the received data is not altered  Data Freshness: Data freshness i plies that the data is recent. and it ensures that no adversary replayed old essages.

µTESLA .SENSOR NETWORK SECURITY BUILDING BLOCKS ‡ To achieve the security re uire ents the researchers have designed and i ple ented two security building blocks: 1. 2. SNEP (Sensor Network Security Protocol).

‡ It has low co essage only. replay protection.SNEP provides a nu ber of uni ue advantages. and essage freshness. ‡ It also gives us data authentication. adds 8 bytes per ‡ It achieves even se antic security. . unication overhead.

.  The counter value is incre ented after each essage.Semantic security: A strong security property which prevents eavesdroppers fro inferring the essage content fro the encrypted essage. the sa e essage is encrypted differently each ti e.

Without counter value an adversary could easily replay essages. . Message freshness:  If the essage is verified correctly.Replay protection:  The counter value prevents replaying old essages. a receiver knows that the essage ust have been sent after the previous essage it received correctly and this enforces a essage ordering and provides essage freshness.

. ‡ Without authenticated broadcast any co pro ised receiver could forge essages fro the sender. ‡ µTESLA uses asy etric echanis through a delayed etric keys.µTESLA is a new protocol which provides authenticated broadcast for severely resource-constrained environ ents. which results in an efficient disclosure of sy broadcast authentication sche e.

‡ When a node gets a packet.‡ µTESLA re uires that the base station and nodes are loosely ti e synchronized. ‡ To send an authenticated packet. it can verify that the corresponding MAC key was not yet disclosed by the base station ‡ The node stores the packet in a buffer . the base station si ply co putes a MAC on the packet with a key that is secret at that point in ti e.

I ple entation of µTESLA protocol uses another 574 bytes. Together. the crypto library and the protocol i ple entation consu e about 2 KBytes of progra e ory . Energy costs and communication overheads.EVALUATION Evaluation of the implementation of the protocols is done in terms of Code size. Performance. Code size: The s allest version of the crypto routines occupies about 20% of the available code space.

. Energy Cost: Most Energy costs will co e fro extra trans issions re uired by the protocols but we use a strea cipher for encryption.Performance: The perfor ance of the cryptographic pri itives is ade uate for the bandwidth supported by the current generation of network sensors.

The design is Universal and can be easily applied to all sensor networks. are low and With these techni ues. The co co putation costs of cryptography unication costs are also s all. .CONCLUSION Security protocols for sensor networks are feasible and can be successfully i ple ented on a sensor network.
