Key management for wireless sensor networks meets new challenges due to its special properties. However, key distribution is a key problem for wireless sensor networks key management. In this paper, literature researches on WSN key distributions are reviewed at first, and the popular key pre-distribution schemes and protocols are analyzed. Then, a new key management scheme based on the novel cryptographic technique named bilinear pairing is proposed, as well as its security and performance are all discussed.
