Abstract: Wireless Adhoc and Sensor Networks (WASNs) provide easy, effective and cheaper solutions for real life multidisciplinary problems as in military, robotics, weather forecasting and medical sciences. The energy constraint and security issue comes directly in mind while talking of WASN. As the areas of WASNs are increasing, security and energy needs special attention so that the network does not results in a failure. While talking about energy there are three major areas of WASN which can be worked upon to improve their efficiency. They are: battery, circuitry & topology and routing protocols used. Here we are working only on the protocols with certain assumptions for the node hardware. In order to ensure energy efficiency by reducing number of transmissions, data aggregation is a widely used technique. We thus, implement a secure data aggregation scheme which ensures reduced total energy consumption of the network as well.
Keywords: Data Aggregation, Energy efficiency, lifetime, security, WSN.
