Abstract

Wireless sensor networks (WSN) are rapidly expanding their attractiveness in both military and civilian applications, imposing the need for effective security strategies/mechanisms. In this paper we considered that a new phase (self-destruction) must be included as a final stage in the WSN lifecycle in order to assure the confidentiality regarding information like: network topology, type of measurement data gathered by sensors, encryption/authentication algorithms and key-exchange mechanisms, etc. that can be unveiled through reverse engineering methods. Moreover, we presented a new procedure that implements this new lifecycle phase on a cluster-tree network topology.
