Abstract

Wireless sensor networks are emerging as a promising solution for various types of futuristic applications for both military and the public. The design of key management schemes is one of the most important aspects and basic research field of secure wireless sensor networks. Efficient key management could guarantee authenticity and confidentiality of the data exchanged among the nodes in the network. In this paper, we propose a new key management scheme based on loop topology. Comparing with cluster-based key management schemes, loop-based scheme is proved to be more efficient, cost-saving and safe.
