The integration of wireless sensor nodes (WSNs) in the Internet of things (IoT) may generate new security challenges for establishing secure channels between low-power sensor nodes and Internet hosts. It includes a bunch of challenges right from redefining the existing ones from scratch of legacy codes to the current trend of proposing and designing new key establishment and authentication protocols. This paper is the successful attempt in resource constraint environment like wireless sensor network (WSN) to integrate cipher authentication and lightweight key management solutions in one bundle so that it can be deployed in IoT domains WSN is also a part of IoT. The cipher should be authenticated, lightweight, and should be flexible to use in the cryptanalysis. The cipher gives the better authentication techniques and performance but limited to the flexibility. Lightweight block cipher (LBC) uses less 3 4 S. Qamar et al. computation and secures the data with low computational cost and it is used for many purposes like radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags and sensor network nodes. Advanced Encryption Standard is applied in many devices for the encryption, but it cannot be applied to the smaller embedded devices like wearable devices, etc. LBC works for the many devices with low resources, and research on the LBC has been increased. In this research, Data Encryption Standard (DES) and analyzed algorithm are used to increase the efficiency in terms of solving time and Improved Fault Analysis (IAFA) is used to increases the security of the LBC in wireless sensor node for IoT.
