Wireless sensor networks originated with military surveillance applications but are increasingly being used to monitor industrial processes, the health of medical patients and environmental hazards such as geological events and bushfires. In many applications failures of the sensor net can place millions of dollars, and sometimes human lives, at threat so security has assumed an increasing importance. Securing wireless sensor networks is a difficult problem because of the severely constrained environment provided by typical sensor motes. Conventional network security measures cannot simply be retro-fitted into wireless sensor nets because the computational and communications costs are often too high. The problem is further compounded because the physical integrity of sensors themselves cannot be guaranteed. The sensor network environment requires that new, innovative and efficient approaches are adopted.
