Abstract: Due to the technological advancement in wireless communication, energy-efficient power supply, and semiconductor technology, the smart sensor becomes popular in many applications. In WSN, the private data collected and processed by the sensor node must be protected from the malicious attack. Due to the resource constraint nature of WSN, the traditional security protocols do not apply to this network as it involves huge and complex computation. Furthermore, the energy supplied by the battery is not renewable. This paper proposes a secure cluster-based multiple-hop routing protocol for prolonging the lifetime of WSN and securing the data in transit and storage. This protocol proposes the matrix transposition cryptographic techniques for securing the sensor data. This protocol compares the energy consumption and throughput of two secure routing protocols.
