Transmission pipelines are vulnerable to various accidents and acts of vandalism. Therefore, a reliable monitoring system is needed to secure the transmission pipelines. A wireless sensor network is a wireless network consisting of distributed devices distributed at various distances, which monitors the physical and environmental conditions using sensors. Wireless sensor networks have many uses, including the built-in sensor on the outside of the pipeline or installed to support bridge

Wireless sensor networks are vulnerable to various attacks. Cryptographic algorithms have a good role in information security for wireless sensor networks. Now, various types of cryptographic algorithms provide security in networks, but there are still some problems. In this research, to improve the power of these algorithms, a new hybrid encryption algorithm for monitoring energy transmission lines and increasing the security of wireless sensor networks is proposed. The proposed hybrid encryption algorithm provides the security and timely transmission of data in wireless sensor networks to monitor the transmission pipelines. The proposed algorithm fulfills three principles of cryptography: integrity, confidentiality and authentication. The details of the algorithm and basic concepts are presented in such a way that the algorithm can be operational.
