Abstract

Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are envisioned to play a key role in sensing, collecting, and disseminating information. Typically, large numbers of sensor nodes are organized to sense data, aggregate the data when necessary and forward the data to a base station. WSNs are vulnerable to wide variety of security threats ranging from physical attacks (such as jamming attack) to software attacks (such as black-hole attack, and wormhole attack). For critical applications such as military application, and forest fire monitoring, these attacks can disrupt WSN communications and thus undermine the network functionality including failure in delivering information to the base station. This paper discusses the current approaches employed in achieving security goals (i.e. authentication, integrity, and availability) including discussions on advantages and disadvantages of each approach. The paper also proposed general design characteristics of a resilient cluster-based hierarchical routing in WSNs that can provide a scalable secure routing as well as maintaining privacy.
