Abstract

Recently, there are many researches on security to remove vulnerability which is caused by wireless communication in wireless sensor networks. To guarantee secure communication, we should basically provide key management for each node, mutual authentication and key agreement protocol between two nodes. Although many protocols are presented to supply these security services, some of them require plentiful storage memory, powerful computation and communication capacity. In this paper, we propose a lightweight and efficient authentication and key agreement protocol between two sensor nodes, which is an enhanced version of Juang's scheme. In Juang's protocol, sensor node's information used to share a secret key should be transmitted to registration center via a base station. On the contrary, since node's information in our protocol is transmitted up to only base station, the proposed scheme can decrease computation and communication cost for establishing the shared key between two nodes.
