Abstract
This paper desribes security issues in wireless sensor networks and shows how to protect mobile agent codes inside of sensor nodes. There is shown design of own secured sensor nodes also. Such new nodes provides integrity, confidentiality and also proper interpretation of mobile codes.
Annotation
Wireless sensor networks (WSN) are designed for usage in a wide range of applications where large amount of sensor nodes do some observation for a quite long time period. Although today applications of WSN are based rather on active messages then on active mobile codes we study security issues when mobile codes (agents) are used there. Securing such codes then means to assure their integrity, confi dentiality and also their proper interpretation. On the other hands the hosting devices must be also protected from misbehaviour of malicious agents. In this text we present how we are making agents for the WSN and also how we protect these agents against some possible risks.
