Cost-Aware SEcure Routing (CASER) Protocol Design for Wireless Sensor Networks

Cost-Aware SEcure Routing (CASER) Protocol Design for Wireless Sensor Networks Lifetime optimization and security are two conflicting design issues for multi-hop wireless sensor networks (WSNs) with non-replenishable energy resources. A novel secure and efficient Cost-Aware SEcure Routing (CASER) protocol is proposed to address these two conflicting issues through two adjustable parameters: energy balance control (EBC) and probabilistic-based random walking. The energy consumption is severely disproportional to the uniform energy deployment for the given network topology, which greatly reduces the lifetime of the sensor networks. To solve this problem, an efficient…
