Energy-Efficient Secure Directed Diffusion Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks
In wireless sensor networks, it is crucial to design and employ energy-efficient communication protocols, since nodes are battery-powered and thus their lifetimes are limited. Such constraints combined with a great number of applications used in these networks, pose many challenges (limited energy and low security) to the design and management of wireless sensor networks. These challenges necessitate a great attention. In this paper, the authors present a new version of Directed Diffusion routing protocol which provides both security and energy efficiency together in wireless sensor networks.
