Executive Summary

Security schemes of pairwise key establishment, which enable sensors to communicate with each other securely, play a fundamental role in research on security issue in wireless sensor networks. A general framework for key predistribution is presented, based on the idea of KDC (Key Distribution Center) and polynomial pool schemes. By utilizing nice properties of H2 (Hierarchical Hypercube) model, a new security mechanism for key predistribution based on such model is also proposed. Furthermore, the working performance of tolerance resistance is seriously inspected in this paper. Theoretic analysis and experimental figures show that the algorithm addressed in this paper has better performance and provides higher possibilities for sensor to establish pairwise key, compared with previous related works.
