    Scatter-Secure Code Authentication for Efficient Reprogramming in Wireless Sensor Networks

    Currently proposed solutions to secure code dissemination in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) involve the use of expensive public-key digital signatures. In this paper, the authors present Scatter, a secure code dissemination protocol that enables sensor nodes to authenticate the program image efficiently. To achieve this, they use a scheme that...

The level of output specialization is represented by the elasticity of substitution between capital and labor within a CES production function. A higher degree of specialization increases trading costs but also improves productivity. Money...
