    Abstract

    We present a decentralized key management architecture for wireless sensor networks, covering the aspects of key deployment, key refreshment and key establishment. Our architecture is based on a clear set of assumptions and guidelines. Balance between security and energy consumption is achieved by partitioning a system into two interoperable security realms: the supervised realm trades off simplicity and resources for higher security whereas in the unsupervised realm the vice versa is true. Key deployment uses minimal key storage while key refreshment is based on the well-studied scheme of Abdalla et al. The keying protocols involved use only symmetric cryptography and have all been verified with our constraint solving-based protocol verification tool CoProVe
