Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors introduce ContikiSec, a secure network layer for wireless sensor networks, designed for the Contiki Operating System. ContikiSec has a configurable design, providing three security modes starting from confidentiality and integrity, and expanding to confidentiality, authentication, and integrity. ContikiSec has been designed to balance low energy consumption and security while conforming to a small memory footprint. Their design was based on performance evaluation of existing security primitives and is part of the contribution of this paper.
