AbstractMobile sensors are playing a vital role in various applications of a normal day life. Key size in securing data is an important issue to highlight in mobile sensor data transfer between a smart device and a data storage component. Such key size may affect memory storage and processing power of a mobile device. Therefore, we proposed a secure mobile sensor data transfer protocol called secure sensor protocol (SSP). SSP is based on Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC), which generates small size key in contrast to conventional asymmetric algorithms like RSA and Diffie Hellman. SSP receive values from light sensor and magnetic flux meter of a smart device. SSP encrypts mobile sensor data using ECC and afterwards it stores cipher information in MySQL database to receive remote data access. We compared the performance of the ECC with other existing asymmetric cryptography algorithms in terms of secure mobile sensor data transfer based on data encryption and decryption time, key size and encoded data size. In-addition, SSP shows better results than other cryptography algorithms in terms of secure mobile sensor data transfer.
