In Wireless Sensor Networks, Broadcast communication is the most fundamental and prevailing communication pattern. Securing the broadcast messages from the adversary is critical issue. To defend the WSNs against the adversary attacks of impersonation of a broadcast source or receiver, modification/fabrication of the broadcast message, attacker injecting malicious traffic to deplete the energy from the sensors, broadcast authentication of source and receivers becomes extremely inevitable. In this paper, we propose a novel ECC based public key distribution protocol and broadcast authentication scheme. The proposed method provides high security and has low overhead.
