Kalyani Palanisamy and Chellappan

Abstract

Problem statement: The security in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is a critical issue due to the inherent limitations of computational capacity, storage capacity and power usage. Key management only makes sure the communicating nodes possess the necessary keys, at the same time protecting the confidentiality, integrity and authenticity of the communicated data. Approach: Proposed a RSA-CRT methodology for authenticated broadcast in the wireless sensor networks and analyzed the proposed with existing methodologies indicating their advantages, drawbacks and weaknesses. Results: The proposed RSA with CRT algorithm is improved the secured routing paradigm and provides efficient key management which using optimal encryption/decryption of broadcast messages authentication. Conclusion: The proposed system countermeasures the attacks in the network layer of WSN and it will reduce the communication overhead, storage space and energy consumption of nodes.
