Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have attracted high interest in the wireless and mobile computing research community over the last few decades. Applications of WSNs are numerous and growing, including indoor deployment scenarios in the home and office to outdoor deployment in an adversary’s territory in a tactical background. However, due to their distributed nature and deployment in remote areas, these networks are vulnerable to numerous security threats that can adversely affect their performance.
This problem is more critical if the network is deployed for some mission-critical applications, such as on a tactical battlefield. Random failure of nodes is also very likely in real-life deployment scenarios. Due to resource constraints in the sensor nodes, a traditional security mechanism with a high overhead of computation and communication is not feasible in WSNs. Therefore, designing and implementing secure WSNs is a particularly challenging task.
This book covers a comprehensive discussion of state-of-the-art security technologies for WSNs. It identifies various possible attacks at different layers of the communication protocol stack in a typical WSN and presents their possible countermeasures. A brief discussion on future research directions in WSN security is also included.
