Security is an indispensable concern in Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) due to the presence of potential adversaries. For secure communication in infrastructureless sensor nodes various key pre-distribution have been proposed. In this paper, the authors have evaluated various existing deterministic, probabilistic and hybrid type of key pre-distribution and dynamic key generation algorithms for distributing pair-wise, group-wise and network-wise keys and they have propose a key pre-distribution scheme using deterministic approach based on combinatorial design and traversal design which will improve the resiliency and achieve sufficient level of security in the network. This design can be used where large number of nodes are to be deployed in the WSN.
