Energy Efficient Secured Data Fusion Assurance Mechanism for Wireless Sensor Networks
The low power wireless sensor networks both security and efficiency are the very important when designing or deploying any network or protocol. The nature of large, adhoc, wireless sensor networks presents significant challenges in designing security schemes. One or several sensors then collect the detection results from other sensors. The collected data must be processed by the sensor to reduce the transmission burden before they are transmitted to the base station. Data fusion nodes will fuses the collected data from nearby sensor nodes before they are sent to the base station. If a fusion node is compromised, then the base station cannot ensure the correctness of the fusion data sent to it.
