In unattended wireless sensor networks (WSNs), data is stored locally or at designated nodes upon sensing, and users can access it on demand. This paradigm can improve energy efficiency by making use of the upcoming cheap and large flash memory, as well as system robustness. Nevertheless, the security and dependability of distributed storage are critical for the applicability of such WSNs. In this paper, we propose a secure and dependable data storage scheme by taking advantages of secret sharing and Reed-Solomon code, which has computational security and yet maintains optimal data size. The extensive analysis verifies our scheme can provide secure and dependable data storage in WSNs in the presence of node compromise and Byzantine failure.
