Executive Summary

In an end-to-end encryption model for a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), the network control center preloads encryption and decryption keys to the sensor nodes and the subscribers respectively, such that a subscriber can use a mobile device in the deployment field to decrypt the sensed data encrypted by the more resource-constrained sensor nodes. This paper proposes SMS-SED, a provably secure yet practically efficient key assignment system featuring a discrete time-based access control, to better support a business model where the sensors deployer rents the WSN to customers who desires a higher flexibility beyond subscribing to strictly consecutive periods.
