Abstract: Wireless sensor networks (WSN) are infrastructure less and self-configured a wireless network that allows monitoring the physical conditions of an environment. Many researchers focus on enhancing the performance of WSN in order to provide effective delivery of data on the network, but still results in lower quality of services like energy consumption, delay and routing. We tackle this problem by introducing a new routing algorithm, QoS-based explicit routing algorithm which helps in transmitting the data from source node to destination node on WSN. We also involve clustering process in WSN based on genetic algorithm and particle swarm optimisation (GA and PSO) algorithm. We proposed identity-based digital signature (IBDS) and enhanced identity-based digital signature (EIBDS) that involves reduction of computation overhead and also increasing resilience on the WSN. We also use advanced encryption standard (AES), for ensuring the security between nodes and avoid hacking of data by other intruders.

Keywords: wireless sensor network; WSN; cryptography; digital signature; quality of service; QoS.
