Designing secure data aggregation schemes, which are critical to many sensor network applications, imposes interesting and formidable challenges. In this paper, the authors propose a succinct and practical secure aggregation protocol by combining HMAC (associated with a cryptographic hash function) with Bloom filter, which then is defined as secure Bloom filter. Unlike most previous approaches, which are aimed to provide security mechanisms for ordinary aggregation operations, their proposal firstly is an effective aggregation protocol, suitable for a specific but popular class of aggregation in wireless sensor networks.
