A Cluster based Key Management Scheme for Underwater Wireless Sensor Networks

By Seema Verma Prachi

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Aug. 2015

Underwater Wireless Sensor Networks (UWSNs) explore aquatic environment to facilitate various underwater surveillance applications. However, UWSN unique features also impose new challenges such as limited bandwidth, huge propagation delay, mobile nature of nodes and high error rates. UWSNs deployment in unattended environment further exacerbates their vulnerabilities to the attacks. These challenges make security solutions proposed for Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) impractical to be applicable for UWSN. This paper analyzes the problem of security and mobility in UWSN and proposes Cluster based Key management Protocol (CKP), a new key management protocol for hierarchical networks where sensor nodes form cluster around more capable nodes. CKP also proposes a new communication architecture that handles mobility efficiently and minimizes the impact of a node compromisation to itself. CKP provides confidentiality, authentication, integrity and freshness. The performance evaluation demonstrates that the CKP is energy and storage-efficient. Further, we investigate the survivability and the security of the CKP against various security threats in order to evaluate its effectiveness.

Communication Architecture for Underwater Wireless Sensor Network

By Seema Verma Prachi

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 May 2015

Investigations in hydrologic sciences are bounded because most of existing water surveillance methods are manual. Such systems are incapable to gather information at spatial and temporal level due to location constraints. In this paper, we present a new communication architecture for Underwater Wireless Sensor Network (UWSN) based on acoustic communication. However, unique challenges offered by underwater environment are main hindrance in deployment of UWSN in real life applications. So, we discuss various communication methodologies to figure out which one suits best to the requirements of UWSN. Our simulation results illustrate change in data transmission rate, energy consumption and transmission time w.r.t transmission range and number of nodes in network. Results prove that multi-hop communication offer high transmission rate, large bandwidth. Moreover, multi-hop communication is much more energy and time efficient than direct communication.

A Comparative Study of Key Management Protocols for WSN

By Seema Verma Prachi

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Mar. 2014

Increased employment of WSN (Wireless Sensor Network) in real life applications and their hostile and remote locations accelerate demand of security in WSN. Publicly accessible wireless communication channel also makes WSN vulnerable to numerous security attacks. Scarcity of resources acquaints new sort of challenges and difficulties during implementation of effective security mechanisms. In this paper, we evaluate and compare performance of three different security mechanisms (ECRKS, CKP and AP scheme). ECRKS (Energy-efficient, Connected, Resilient Key pre-distribution Scheme) is based upon multi hop communication architecture specifically designed for homogeneous WSN. Clustering based protocols, AP (Asymmetric pre-distribution) scheme and CKP (Clustering based Key management Protocol) are proposed for heterogeneous WSN. All the above mentioned schemes are simulated in MATLAB to evaluate their effectiveness and suitability for WSN. Simulation result shows that CKP outperforms other two schemes in terms of transmission distance, memory burden, energy dissipation and resilience.

Optical Packet Switch Architectures: A Comparative Study

By Preeti Singh Seema Verma

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Oct. 2012

In this paper four fiber-loop-buffer based photonic packet switched architectures are compared. It is done in terms of their packet loss probability and their optical cost under various load conditions for the random traffic model. The recirculating type delay lines are used for the storage of packets to resolve the contention. The architectures use semiconductor optical amplifiers(SOAs) and tunable wavelength converters(TWCs) in the recirculating loop buffer. The architectures have advantage of simultaneous Read/Write and, wavelength reallocation using TWCs in the recirculating loop buffer. Therefore, it improves the switch performance over the architectures using SOAs in the loop buffer. The cost of the various architectures is evaluated by considering FCC (fiber-to-chip coupling) and the WSU (wavelength speed up factor) model.
