The technological advances of microelectromechanical (MEMS) systems created novel developmental horizons for powerful sensor-based distributed intelligent systems, capable of retrieving various multimedia content such video and audio streams, still images and scalar sensor data from the physical environment. This wirelessly networked paradigm is called Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSNs). WMSNs are designed for both real-time mission-critical applications, which demand strict quality of service (QoS) requirements, such low delay, high throughput and reliability, as well as non-realtime applications which require medium bandwidth and allow certain loss tolerance. In both application scenarios, a concern of great importance nowadays is the data security of WMSNs. As the number of application and usage models rely on the concept of WMSNs, significant research and development attention is dedicated to various mechanisms towards providing privacy and security of such systems. Besides the well-known methods based on cryptography algorithms for
data protection, different security challenges are required for each encryption techniques, mostly as a result on constraints of a different nature. At this context, this work presents a survey on the security mechanisms in WMSNs and their performance, complexity and suitability for implementation in WMSNs.
