Abstract: In real world, data security plays an important role where confidentiality, authentication, integrity, non repudiation are given importance. A wireless sensor network(WSN) consisiting of a large number of tiny sensors can be an effective tool for gathering data in diverse kinds of environments. The data collected by each sensor node is communicated to the base station, which forwards the data to the end user. In wireless sensor network data security plays an important role where confidentiality, authentication, integrity, non repudiation are given importance. This paper, propose a User Authentication(UA) scheme for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), which employs RGB color cube algorithm and Armstrong number for data security. The simulation results on NS2 show that Proposed scheme is not only secure but also increase speed of communication than the existing ATTUA scheme.
Keywords: WSNs, data security, colors, Armstrong numbers, authentication.
