Wireless sensor networks are composed of numerous sensor nodes in the monitored area, which have been well applied in various practical areas. In these applications, data security from sensors has been threatened. Thereby in this paper, a digital watermarking based copyright protection method is proposed with regard to data security in wireless sensor networks. According to the particular characteristics of collecting data, the embedding capacity can be expanded using this method of

When the base station receives the data, we use a lookup Table to improve the speed of data parsing. In order to achieve and verify the copyright protection on WSNs, both theoretical analysis and experimental results have demonstrated that the method can effectively detect the data reliability. In addition, we also generate two-dimensional code based on the test results, thereby facilitating the user's copyright authentication.
