This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the First European Workshop on Wireless Sensor Networks, EWSN 2004, held in Berlin, Germany in January 2004. The 24 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 76 submissions. Wireless sensor networks are a key technology for new ways of interaction between computers and the physical world around us. Compared to traditional networking, wireless sensor networks are faced with a rather unique mix of challenges: scalability, energy-efficiency, self-configuration, constrained computation and memory resources in individual nodes, data centricity, etc. This is one of a very small number of books entirely devoted to the presentation of cutting-edge R & D results in this exciting new area.

This book focuses on the principles of wireless sensor networks (WSNs), their applications, and their analysis tools, with meticulous attention paid to definitions and terminology. This book presents the adopted technologies and their manufacturers in detail, making WSNs tangible for the reader. In introductory computer networking books, chapter sequencing follows the bottom-up or top-down architecture of the 7-layer protocol. This book addresses subsequent steps in this process, both horizontally and vertically, thus fostering a clearer and deeper understanding through chapters that elaborate on WSN concepts and issues. With such depth, this book is intended for a wide audience; it is meant to be a helper and motivator for senior undergraduates, postgraduates, researchers, and practitioners. It lays out important concepts and WSN-relate applications; uses appropriate literature to back research and practical issues; and focuses on new trends. Senior undergraduate students can use it to familiarize themselves with conceptual foundations and practical project implementations. For graduate students and researchers, test beds and simulators provide vital insights into analysis methods and tools for WSNs. Lastly, in addition to applications and deployment, practitioners will be able to learn more about WSN manufacturers and components within several platforms and test beds.

It is our great pleasure to present the proceedings of the European Conference on Wireless Sensor Networks 2010 (EWSN 2010). As the field of wireless sensor networks matures, new design concepts, experim- tal and theoretical findings, and applications have continued to emerge at a rapid pace. As one of the leading international conferences in this area, EWSN has played a s- stantial role in the dissemination of innovative research ideas from researchers all over the globe. EWSN 2010 was organized by the University of Coimbra, Portugal, during February 17–19, 2010 and it was the seventh meeting in this series. Previous events were held in Berlin (Germany) in 2004, Istanbul (Turkey) in 2005, Zurich (Switz- land) in 2006, Delft (The Netherlands) in 2007, and Cork (Ireland) in 2009. A high-quality selection of papers made up EWSN 2010. Based on the reviews and the recommendations from the four live TPC discussions, we selected a total of 21 papers from 109 submissions (19.26% acceptance rate) for EWSN 2010. Topics of interest included hardware design and implementation, operating systems and so- ware, middleware and macroprogramming, communication and network protocols, information and signal processing, fundamental theoretical limits and algorithms, prototypes, field experiments, testbeds, novel applications, including urban sensing, security and fault-tolerance. Putting together EWSN 2010 was a team effort. We would like to thank the P- gram Committee members, the reviewers, our sponsors, all authors, and the Organ- ing Committee for their respective contributions.

Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have attracted high interest over the last few decades in the wireless and mobile computing research community. Applications of WSNs are numerous and growing, including indoor deployment scenarios in the home and office to outdoor deployment in an adversary’s territory in a tactical background. However, due to their distributed nature and deployment in remote areas, these networks are vulnerable to numerous security threats that can adversely affect their performance. This problem is more critical if the network is deployed for some mission-critical applications, such as in a tactical battlefield. Random failure of nodes is also very likely in real-life deployment scenarios. Due to resource constraints in the sensor nodes, a traditional security mechanism with high overhead of computation and communication is not feasible in WSNs. Design and implementation of secure WSNs is, therefore, a particularly challenging task. This book covers a comprehensive discussion on state-of-the-art security technologies for WSNs. It identifies various possible attacks at different layers of the communication protocol stack in a typical WSN and presents their possible countermeasures. A brief discussion on the future direction of research in WSN security is also included.
