Sensor network devices are no less vulnerable to remote attacks, such as malicious worms, than their general purpose computer counterparts, and are presented with unique threats because of the hostile environments sensors are placed in. It is well known that sensor devices place challenging constraints on any attempt to secure them against these attacks, including small performance and power budgets, infrequent patch updates, and long service lives. However, in this paper the authors demonstrate that security can be built into sensor devices \"From the ground up\".
