Analysis of Key Management and Quantum Cryptography in Wireless Sensors Networks

Key management and Quantum Cryptography (QC) are very interesting and challenging areas in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). In order to make secure communications around WSN, communication between sensor nodes and base station to sensor node communication should be handled carefully. Today's security around WSN needs efficient key management protocol and QC involved with quantum mathematical procedures and quantum physics. According to the key management analysis, computational complexities of conventional and potential cryptography are very high. In order to avoid high complexity in key management, QC can be used because it is involved with quantum computation.
