Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) transmits sensitive data from physical environment to digital medium. Thus, security is essential to transmit these vulnerable data. Authenticated Encryption aim to provide security in WSN with integrity, confidentiality, and authentication of data transmitted. Block cipher modes of operations provide different cipher text for identical plain text which further enhances the security. Sensor nodes have its own operational constraint which makes security algorithm to be light in terms of area and low power consumption. In this paper novel architecture of authenticated encryption of lightweight symmetric cipher PRESENT and lightweight hash function SPONGENT in OFB mode is proposed. Proposed design is evaluated in terms of Gate Equivalent (GE), operating frequency and power consumption using Cadence Genus® tool using 180 nm technology library.
Keywords: Authenticated Encryption, Low Area, Low Power, PRESENT, SPONGENT.
Scope of the Article: Wireless ad hoc & Sensor Networks
