Adopting Internet Protocols to Sensor Internetworking

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Recent research in the area of the Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) has shown that protocols most commonly used today in the Internet can be implemented within energy and memory constraints of the WSNs. This paper surveys recent research performed in the area of making IP protocols viable for WSNs. Lightweight implementations of IP and IPv6 protocols, uIP and uIPv6 will be covered, as well as viability of running TCP in WSNs will be discussed. Adoption of the Internet protocols for the WSN results in a need for adoption of security mechanisms used in the Internet for WSNs. Thus, the authors will also cover some symmetric and asymmetric cryptography based, security solutions for WSNs, existing today.
