Wide-spread deployment of sensor networks is on the horizon. Networks of thousands of sensors may present an economical solution to some of the challenging problems: real-time traffic monitoring, building safety monitoring (structural, fire, and physical security monitoring), military sensing and tracking, distributed measurement of seismic activity, real-time pollution monitoring, wildlife monitoring, wildfire tracking, etc. Many applications are dependent on the secure operation of a sensor network, and have serious consequences if the network is compromised or disrupted.
