In sensor network there are no nodes or servers that are exclusively responsible for packet forwarding and routing. Instead, sensor nodes participating in network communications perform these activities. Thus, they are vulnerable to the alteration and forgery of message in the process of packet forwarding and routing. To solve this problem, a security to ensure authentication and integrity of routing and forwarding messages should be required. To do this, we propose the hash chain-based digital signature model where it takes less time to compute in generating and verifying the digital signature model, unlike the public key-based digital signature model, and verify if this model is proper by comparing computation times between tow models.
