MUQAMI: A Locally Distributed Key Management Scheme for Clustered Sensor Networks
In many of the sensor network applications like natural habitat monitoring and international border monitoring, sensor networks are deployed in areas, where there is a high possibility of node capture and network level attacks. Specifically in such applications, the sensor nodes are severely limited in resources. We propose MUQAMI, a locally distributed key management scheme for resilience against the node capture in wireless sensor networks. Our scheme is efficient both in case of keying, re-keying and node compromise. Beauty of our scheme is that it requires minimal message transmission outside the cluster. We base our Scheme on Exclusion Basis System (EBS).
