WirelessHART is the first open standard for wireless sensor networks designed specifically for industrial process automation and control systems. WirelessHART is a secure protocol; however, it relies on a Security Manager for the management of the security keys and the authentication of new devices. The WirelessHART standard does not provide the specification and design of the Security Manager. Also, the security specifications in the standard are not well organized and are dispersed throughout the standard which makes an implementation of the standard more difficult. In this paper we provide the detailed specification and design as well as an implementation of the Security Manager for theWirelessHART standard. We evaluate our security manager against different cryptographic algorithms and measure the latency between the Network Manager and the SecurityManager. Our evaluation shows that the proposed security manager meets theWirelessHART requirements. Our analysis shows that the provided Security Manager is capable of securing both the wireless and wired part of the WirelessHART network.
