Paper Abstract

This paper presents a novel key management scheme for a tiered self-healing wireless sensor network. A tiered wireless sensor network with self-healing features draws extensive attention because of its scalability, robustness and reliability. A tiered key management scheme to support the cluster membership and the self-healing features is proposed with emphasis on the control of a node's participation and re-keying when joining a new cluster. The security and overhead analysis demonstrates the proposed scheme is effective and efficient with respect to communication, computation, and memory overhead for operation in a hostile environment.
