Abstract

Sensor networks are becoming an essential part of smart environments. However, most previous systems rely on ad-hoc mechanisms to access the sensor network from the enterprise information system. We propose the use of object oriented middlewares to provide a Virtual Private Network in which all involved elements (sensor nodes or computer applications) will able to communicate as if they all were in a single uniform network.
