Evaluation of the Security Mechanisms Impact on Wireless Sensor Networks

Time 04/29/09 01:15PM-02:30PM

Session Abstract

The deployment of security solutions in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is considered a challenge due to the highly constrained devices involved in these applications. In this presentation, it is addressed the performance evaluation of the security algorithms on a WSN testbed, considering the Operating System (OS) overhead. In this manner, it is shown the observed impact of security mechanisms on WSNs and compared this impact with other ones generated by common non-security related tasks.
