SEC-SNMP: POLICY-BASED SECURITY MANAGEMENT FOR SENSOR NETWORKS

Qinghua Wang, Tingting Zhang

Abstract

In this paper, we present a sensor network security management framework called Sec-SNMP, which organizes and manages security related behaviors in sensor networks based on security policies. There are three main components in Sec-SNMP: Sec-SNMP manager, Sec-SNMP agent and a policy control and deployment protocol. Sec-SNMP manager provides the interface between human administrator and the managed mesh network. Sec-SNMP agent represents Sec-SNMP manager to enforce security policies within the managed mesh network. The policy control and deployment protocol allows the communication between Sec-SNMP manager and Sec-SNMP agents. The security management for sensor networks is still in its germinal stage, and this paper provides a good guideline for future research.
