Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are one of the most exciting and challenging research areas. It is an emerging technology that shows various applications both for public and military purpose. In order to operate these applications successfully, it is necessary to maintain privacy and secrecy of the transmitted data. In this paper, we have presented a Reliable Security Model (RSM) for WSNs. To incorporate the security, we are using four keys out of which two are static and remaining two are dynamic. One of the static key is obtained by composition of Q number of keys, and other is real-time MAC ID (RTMAC). Dynamic keys are computed on fly and keep on changing each time when the network is synchronized. In RSM, the synchronization time is less than the time required to compromise any node by an adversary, so that even if some nodes get compromised, the keying materials of the node have already been changed.
