We aim to secure smart sensor networks, where computationally powerful sensing devices such as smartphones or cognitive radios interact with the cloud. In previous work, we have proposed a large-scale brokering framework, and we are researching several facets of securing sensors in the context of this framework. In this paper we discuss initial results for three portions of this effort, challenges that remain for secure sensor networks, and specific directions we are currently pursuing. In
