Abstract—The development of small-size, low-cost, and
low-power sensors that possess sensing, signal processing and
wireless communication capabilities is becoming popular for
the wireless sensor networks. Cluster-based routing protocol is
a good choice to achieve the energy efficiency for the wireless
sensor networks. Due to the limited resources and energy
constraints, complex security algorithms cannot be employed in
sensor networks. In this paper, we propose a cluster-based
routing protocol with a key pre-distribution scheme which
improves the resilience of the network. In addition, our scheme
is suitable for link error-prone environments. We describe the
details of the algorithm and compare it with other schemes.
Simulation results show that the proposed scheme achieves
better performance in terms of security, efficiency and key
