A Hybrid Algorithm to Enhance Wireless Sensor Networks security on the IoT. (arXiv:2303.14445v1 [cs.CR])

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a futuristic technology that promises to
connect tons of devices via the internet. As more individuals connect to the
internet, it is believed that communication will generate mountains of data.
IoT is currently leveraging Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) to collect,
monitor, and transmit data and sensitive data across wireless networks using
sensor nodes. WSNs encounter a variety of threats posed by attackers, including
unauthorized access and data security. Especially in the context of the
Internet of Things, where small embedded devices with limited computational
capabilities, such as sensor nodes, are expected to connect to a larger
network. As a result, WSNs are vulnerable to a variety of attacks. Furthermore,
implementing security is time-consuming and selective, as traditional security
algorithms degrade network performance due to their computational complexity
and inherent delays. This paper describes an encryption algorithm that combines
the Secure IoT (SIT) algorithm with the Security Protocols for Sensor Networks
(SPINS) security protocol to create the Lightweight Security Algorithm (LSA),
which addresses data security concerns while reducing power consumption in WSNs
without sacrificing performance.
