SARDS: Secured Anonymous Routing with Digital Signature in Wireless Sensor Network


A Wireless Sensor Network has witnessed a massive research towards security as well as energy efficiency in past decades. However, there are few studies that have witnessed a cost effective secure routing technique with energy effectiveness till date. Objectives: Our objective is to use public key cryptography for ensuring energy-efficient routing technique in Wireless Sensor Network. Method/Analysis: The proposed paper presents a technique called as SARDS (Secured Anonymous Routing with Digital Signature) that performs verification of the routing information exchanged among the sensors in Wireless Sensor Network. SARDS uses elliptical curve cryptography as the backbone of security formulations and performs authentication of all the communicating nodes present in the network. Findings: The system also allows a dual layer of security by introducing a novel signature based scheme towards public key encryption policy. The outcome of the study shows SARDS to excel best in performance in comparison of existing security and energy efficient routing schemes. Application/Improvements: Proposed SARDS technique offers 1) A novel public key encryption, 2) A novel digital signature scheme, and 3) A novel privacy or anonymous scheme. The outcome of the proposed system is also found to be superior as compared to existing protocols e.g. SecLEACH, LEACH and PEGASIS.
