Efficient ID-Based Threshold Random Key Pre-Distribution Scheme for Wireless Sensor Networks
Security for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) has become an increasingly serious concern due to the requirement level of applications and hostile deployment areas. To enable secure services, cryptographic keys must be agreed upon by communicating nodes. Unfortunately, due to resource constraints, the key agreement problem in wireless sensor networks has become quite complicated. To tackle this problem, many public-key unrelated proposals which are considered more reasonable in cost than public key based approaches have been proposed so far including random based key pre-distribution schemes.
