Abstract

The applications of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are continuously expanding. Recently, consistent research and development activities have been associated to this field. Security ranks at the top of the issues that should be discussed when deploying a WSN. This is basically due to the fact that WSNs are, by nature, mission-critical. Their applications mainly include battlefield control, emergency response (when a natural disaster occurs), and healthcare. This chapter reviews recent research results in the field of WSN security.
