In this paper, we design a UCON based security access scheme for WSNs. The proposed scheme can not only provide secure authentication with low expenses between client nodes and server nodes, but also perform access control with attribute mutability and decision continuity. Our initial work with the proposed model has been very promising and provides a great tool to resolve the security access problem for WSNs.
