Safe and Distributed Data Sharing in Wireless Sensor Network by Using Revocation Process

IJCSEC Front Page

Distributed data discovery and dissemination protocol for wireless sensor networks is responsible for allows the network owners to authorize multiple network users with different privileges to simultaneously and directly disseminate data items to the sensor nodes. In existing protocols suffer from two major drawbacks present in wireless network. First they are based only security in network not safety in sensor nodes. Second those protocols are not designed with security in mind and thus adversaries will simply launch attacks to damage the data packets. This paper proposes proving the authentication and enhancing the validation system by using revocation process. The proposed scheme also solves the improper certificate revocation which can occur due to false accusations made by malicious node also the problem of window of opportunity where revoked certificates get assigned as a valid to new nodes.
