Abstract

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are supporting the operation of a variety of critical infrastructures. In order to secure the operation of WSNs, appropriate security protocols have been specified supporting different operational objectives and security features. Often, it is challenging to identify the protocols’ key operation and key features due to various reasons such as the lack of expert knowledge and the complexity of protocols. This can limit the ability of researchers to identify protocols of interest and apply them at a specific setup. This challenge is addressed by designing a platform to classify a wide-range of security protocols in WSNs, to highlight their key features and to guide users through an interactive and user-friendly approach to select protocols of interest. An appropriate proof-of-concept has been developed.
