Security and privacy protection for body sensor networks are nontrivial: inadequate protection could lead to the leakage of sensitive personal information and other attacks. Unfortunately, current solutions mainly rely on static and machine-oriented pre-distributed IDs, which have several weaknesses. In order to solve this problem, we propose dynamic binding protocol and eXtensible Resource Identifier (XRI) based ID scheme. Thanks to them, IDs are dynamically allocated and easily managed. In addition, we show how a human interactive channel can be used for wireless sensor network security protection.
