An Enhanced Temporal-Credential-Based Mutual Authentication and Key Agreement Scheme for Wireless Sensor Network

Muxi Zhang and JooSeok Song
Abstract—Sometimes, people want to get real-time sensory information from many domains such as medical monitoring, disaster detection and military surveillance. To achieve this, wireless sensor network (WSN) is a useful tool. A legitimate user can login to the network and access the sensory data from legitimate sensor nodes with the aid of gateway node. Since WSN is an energy-constrained environment, a secure and lightweight authentication scheme among user, gateway node and sensor node is important in WSN. In this paper, a secure mutual authentication and key agreement (MAAKA) scheme for WSN which improves three related works is suggested. Compared with them, the proposed scheme is more secure. It also reduces the total computational overhead by at least 13.6% while almost maintaining the communication overhead.

Index Terms—Key agreement, mutual authentication, temporal credential, wireless sensor network.
