ContikiSec: A Secure Network Layer for Wireless Sensor Networks under the Contiki Operating System
Paper i proceeding, 2009
In this paper we introduce ContikiSec, a secure network layer for
wireless sensor networks, designed for the Contiki Operating System. ContikiSec
has a configurable design, providing three security modes starting from
confidentiality and integrity, and expanding to confidentiality, authentication,
and integrity. ContikiSec has been designed to balance low energy consumption
and security while conforming to a small memory footprint. Our design was
based on performance evaluation of existing security primitives and is part of
the contribution of this paper. Our evaluation was performed in the Modular
Sensor Board hardware platform for wireless sensor networks, running Contiki.
Contiki is an open source, highly portable operating system for wireless sensor
networks (WSN) that is widely used in WSNs.
