Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is one of the most important solutions for emergency applications, such as fire, flood and volcano monitoring, especially underground disasters. In this paper, we propose a mobile-hierarchy WSN architecture for underground emergency response system and a secure handshake scheme for the mobile-hierarchy architecture. In the discussions, the proposed secret attribute handshake scheme verifies the legitimacy of a node over an insecure wireless communication channel

It shows good efficiency by extensive simulations in special emergency scenario. Moreover, it enables a new efficient solution to underground emergency response system.
