IP-based Wireless Sensor Networks (IP-WSN) are popularly recognized as a global sensor networks infrastructure by combining IPv6 technology with Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). However, IP-WSN, currently, does not provide security because it is commonly recognized that it is a big burden for IPWSN to adapt Internet's dominant security protocol. It suggests a security protocol for IP-WSN based on Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). It has developed IP-WSN sensor node hardware with 16-bit MSP430 MCU including 116 KB Flash and 8 KB RAM, and implemented IP-WSN software stack and lightweight SSL components.
