Wireless sensor networks consist of sensor nodes with limited computational and communication capabilities. In this paper, the whole network of sensor nodes is divided into clusters based on their physical locations. In addition, efficient ways of key distribution among the nodes within the cluster and among controllers of each cluster are discussed. Also, inter and intra cluster communications are presented in detail. The security of the entire network through efficient key management by taking into consideration the network's power capabilities is discussed. A graphical representation of the simulation on the scheme is also presented.
