    Sensor networks differ from traditional networks in many aspects including their limited energy, memory space, and computational capability. These differentiators create unique security vulnerabilities.

    Security in Sensor Networks covers all aspects of the subject, serving as an invaluable reference for researchers, educators, and practitioners in the field. Containing thirteen invited chapters from internationally recognized security experts, this volume details attacks, encryption, authentication, watermarking, key management, secure routing, and secure aggregation, location, and cross-layer. It offers insight into attacking and defending routing mechanisms in ad hoc and sensor networks, and analyzes MAC layer attacks in 802.15.4 sensor networks.

    About the Author
    Before joining the Department of Computer Science at the University of Alabama in 2006, and his prior position at the University of Memphis in 2002, Dr. Yang Xiao was an accomplished Medium Access Control (MAC) architect deeply involved in IEEE 802.11 standard enhancement. A former voting member of IEEE 802.11 Working Group, he serves as editor or on the editorial boards of numerous prestigious journals that cover emerging topics within mobile and wireless computing. A co-editor of seven books, he also serves as a referee/reviewer for many funding agencies, as well as a panelist for the National Science Foundation.
