Real world applications of Wireless Sensor Networks such as border control, healthcare monitoring and target tracking require secure communications. Thus, during WSN setup, one of the first requirements is to distribute the keys to the sensor nodes which can be later used for securing the messages exchanged between sensors. The key management schemes in WSN secure the communication between a pair or a group of nodes. However, the storage capacity of the sensor nodes is limited which makes storage requirement as an important parameter for the evaluation of key management schemes. This paper classifies the existing key management schemes proposed for WSNs into three categories: storage inefficient, storage efficient and highly storage efficient key management schemes.
