Abstract: INowadays Wireless Sensor Networks are using Internet-of-Thing (IoT) technology-based nodes because of the wide usance and cost effectiveness. Many of the Wireless sensor nodes are battery powered devices with limited computational and communication resources. The algorithm of the conventional wireless sensor networks are designed for small closed group network communications with better power management and reasonable security strategies. When using IoT based Wireless sensor networks, the nodes are used to communicate with the internet, where there is a need for more secured algorithm. The internet protocols are having powerful security authentication systems those require more computational resources, thus they can drain a battery operated little wireless sensor node. This work is indented to introduce a legacy power-security balanced algorithm to use in the IoT based Wireless Sensor Network environments. Proxy Mobile Internet Protocol version 6 (PMIPv6) is selected as the base protocol in which the proposed security authentication mechanism is used instead of inbuilt Diffie-Hellman authentication scheme. A customized Media Access Control (MAC) address-based session key initialization procedure along with seed based random number session key update mechanism is proposed and verified in this work.
