A Wireless Sensor Networks Security Protocol Architecture

2019 International Journal of Engineering and Advanced Technology  
A wireless sensor network is made up of extremely small autonomous units capable of sensing, computing and communicating. There are numerous restrictions on wireless sensor networks as the resource available to the wireless sensor network is limited. Thus, a number of clustering protocols in a routing sensor organization of sensor networks have been proposed in the literature which increase the throughput, save energy and decrease the delay in the system. In this paper, we put forward SNP, the

In this, the design vulnerabilities which were found in the protocols such as 802.11b and GSM are addressed using SNP. Security protocols have very conservative approach while guaranteeing the security and typically add up around 16-32 bytes as overhead. Owing to the scenario that sensor networks have limited supply of energy, little memory and low power processors, a 30 byte packet is more of unaffordable luxury for the wireless sensor networks. In SNP, the different trade-offs between separate cryptographic algorithms and wireless sensor network limitations are used to find an optimum point where packet overhead, security and resource requirements are met.
