Abstract

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is currently receiving a significant attention due to their potential impact into several real life applications such as military and home automation technology. The work in this study is a complementary part of what’s discussed. In this study, we propose a software tool to simulate and evaluate the six evaluation metrics presented for non-deterministic wireless sensor network in which are: Scalability, Key Connectivity, Memory complexity, Communication complexity, Power Consumption and Confidentiality. The evaluation metrics were simulated as well as evaluated to help the network designer choosing the best probabilistic security key management algorithm for certain randomly distributed sensory network.
