Abstract

Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are implemented in various Internet-of-Things applications such as energy management systems. As the applications may involve personal information, they must be protected from attackers attempting to read information or control network devices. Research on WSN security is essential to protect WSNs from attacks. Studies in such research domains propose solutions against the attacks. However, they focus mainly on the security measures rather than on their ease in implementation in WSNs. In this paper, we propose a coordination middleware that provides an environment for constructing updatable WSNs for security. The middleware is based on LINC, a rule-based coordination middleware. The proposed approach allows the development of WSNs and attaches or detaches security modules when required. We implemented three security modules on LINC and on a real network, as case studies. Moreover, we evaluated the implementation costs while comparing the case studies.
