Abstract

In this article, we demonstrate that the asymmetric key-based architecture for securing wireless sensor networks recently introduced by Haque et al. is insecure under impersonation attack, since it does not provide authentication semantics. In addition, we show that, for the scheme to work correctly, the resulting key distribution construction should be symmetric and group-wise.
