Abstract

Distributed Sensor Networks are broadly used in many applications and key distribution is a challenging task. In this work, a key management scheme is developed for distributed sensor networks based on elliptic curve cryptography over prime field. Key distribution among the nodes and interactive as well as non interactive protocols for agreement of common secret key for message transmission between two nodes are discussed. The probability for connectivity of the network generated according to the proposed key distribution scheme is discussed in detail. The implementation of the proposed scheme is done using NetSim interfaced with MATLAB. Connectivity of the network is also checked through eigenvalues of the Laplacian matrix of the network. 


 


Keywords: Sensor networks, Elliptic curves, key distribution, interactive and non interactive protocols
