Abstract:


Security is first priority in Body Area sensor Network (BSN) as it contained personal health information like blood pressure & heartbeat. So Bio stats of a patient should be protected against attacks of intruders. In this research a simplified security model is presented for multiple BSN sensors. A novel and authentic key agreement between sensors and monitoring system (Gateway) has been proposed which is simple and resource efficient. It also fulfills the light weight requirement of security.
