Wireless sensor networks experience an increase of attacks in networks in term of security. However, broadcast communication is an essential algorithm that provides a great benefit for large scale communications, especially in Building Automation System (BAS). Embedding the security in this area becomes the top priority for every industry. TESLA protocol is an algorithm that verifies and authenticates senders and has low overhead and a robust authentication mechanism. The appeal of TESLA motivates us to apply this protocol into a hierarchical wireless network architecture for BAS that has a high flexibility for formation networks. To combine these two architectures we implement the knowledge of zero knowledge protocol and a session key cryptography into the formation phase, and modify packets that were used in this phase to make TESLA-alpha protocol compatible with BAS.
