Routing Strategy and Data Security Technology in IPv6 Wireless Sensor Networks

Li Zhaoyan, Zhao Chengfang


A new routing rule detection and identity authentication mechanism based on the path sequence is proposed to cope with the vulnerability problem of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) against various attacks, especially in unattended environments. Then, the great permutation encryption algorithm (G-PEC) for WSN is proposed. Finally, a signature scheme against pollution attack based on linear network coding is improved. The results show that the proposed path sequence-based authentication method with the Contiki simulation platform can significantly reduce the computing overhead of sensor nodes and decrease the energy consumption and delay of nodes to a greater extent than the traditional authentication method. The G-PEC can effectively resist eavesdropping attack, and the new signature scheme does not need additional secure channels. The proposed mechanism also provides source message authentication.
