RSDA: Reputation-based Secure Data Aggregation in Wireless Sensor Networks

Alzaid, Hani, Foo, Ernest, & Gonzalez Nieto, Juan (2008) RSDA: Reputation-based Secure Data Aggregation in Wireless Sensor Networks. In 1st International Workshop on Sensor Networks and Ambient Intelligence (SeNAmI 2008), December 1-4, 2008, Dunedin, New Zealand.


Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are a new technology that is expected to be used in the near future due to its cheap cost and data processing ability. However, securing WSNs with traditional cryptographic mechanism is insufficient because of the existing limited resources and the lack of tamper resistant hardware. In this paper, we propose a Reputation-based Secure Data Aggregation for WSNs (RSDA) that integrates aggregation functionality with the advantages provided by a reputation system to enhance the network lifetime and the accuracy of the aggregated data. We bind symmetric secret keys to geographic locations and assign these keys to sensor nodes based on their locations. RSDA therefore can resist an adversary that is capable to compromise up to W sensor nodes in total with no more than t − 1 compromised nodes in any cell.

14 citations in Scopus
Search Google Scholar™
17 citations in Web of Science®

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
