Secure and Distributed Data Discovery and Dissemination in Wireless Sensor Networks
Abstract— Secure and Distributed Data Discovery and Dissemination in Wireless Sensor Networks. A data discovery and dissemination protocol for wireless sensor networks < Final Year Projects 2016 > is responsible for updating conﬁguration parameters of, and distributing management commands to, the sensor nodes. All existing data discovery and dissemination protocols suffer from two drawbacks. First, they are based on the centralized approach; only the base station can distribute data items. Such an approach is not suitable for emergent multi-owner-multi-user WSNs. Second, those protocols were not designed with security in mind and hence adversaries can easily launch attacks to harm the network. This paper proposes the ﬁrst secure and distributed data discovery and dissemination protocol named DiDrip.
