An important topic addressed by the wireless sensor networks community over the last several years is the in-network data aggregation. It is significant as well as a challenging issue to provide reliable data aggregation scheme while preserving data privacy. However, in WSNs, achieving ideal data accuracy is complicated due to collision, heavy network traffic, processing delays and/or several attacks. The problem of gathering accurate integrated data will be further intensified if the environment is adverse. Hence how to attain data privacy and perfect data accuracy are two major challenges for data aggregation in wireless sensor networks. To address this problem, we propose in this paper a new privacy preserving data aggregation scheme. We present REBIVE (REliaBle prIVate data aggrEgation scheme). In REBIVE the data accuracy maintenance and data privacy protection mechanisms work cooperatively. Different from past research, our proposed solution have the following features: providing privacy preservation technique for individual sensor data and aggregated sensor data; maintaining perfect data accuracy for realistic environments; being highly efficient; and being robust to popular attacks launched in WSNs.
