Data dissemination is important concept in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). In this paper, the authors propose a secure and energy efficient data dissemination protocol for WSN. A routing metric is defined to choose the best route from the available routes. These metric guides those routes to be chosen that consume less energy. Moreover, for secure data dissemination, a session key is established between different parties to be communicated. This session key is then used for secure communication among nodes for data dissemination.
