ContikiSec is a secure network layer for wireless sensor networks, designed for the
Contiki Operating System.
ContikiSec has been designed to balance low energy consumption and security
while conforming to a small memory footprint.
We designed ContikiSec as a complete and configurable solution,
providing three security modes:
ContikiSec-Enc, which provides confidentiality and integrity.
ContikiSec-Auth, which guarantees authenticity and integrity.
ContikiSec-AE, which supports confidentiality, authenticity and integrity.
ContikiSec has been designed to run on the Modular Sensor Board hardware platform.
The source code of ContikiSec is based on existing security algorithms such as
AES, CBC-CS, CMAC, and OCB.
