Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) consist of a large number of wireless sensor nodes dispersed in an area of interest with one or more base stations mainly used in monitoring our environment and also for physical conditions. It has been established that energy is the most constraining factor on the functionality of such networks because they are powered with limited energy and replacement of power resources might be unfeasible. Duty Cycling and In-Network Aggregation could be used to reduce energy consumption but energy saving is obtained at the expense of an increased node complexity and network latency. However, in order to reduce energy consumption and increase reliability, nodes only need to send small packet to the sink. A secured and energy efficient wireless sensor network using Chinese Remainder Theorem (CRT) based packet splitting algorithm is therefore proposed. This technique involves splitting the messages sent by the source node of a wireless sensor network so that the maximum number of bits per packet that a node has to forward is reduced which decreases the energy consumption of the network. However, it also increases the message security because the remainders of sensed data are sent instead of data itself, the received packet is encrypted and for decrypt the message, need to have the moduli set which serves as the secret key. The results obtained shows the proposed algorithm outperforms traditional approaches in terms of energy saving, reliability, simplicity and fair distribution of energy consumption among all nodes in the network as well as reduction in end-to-end delay.
