Abstract. This document describes how to use the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) to authenticate sensors in wireless sensors network which create a sensors' domain. Model of the wireless sensor network is presented. There are three types of nodes in the domain. The M node is an authentication authority in sensors' domain -- it stores credentials of all nodes of domain. The M node is also the recipient of the data emitted by the domain sensors. The S node is the source of sensors data (i.e. air temperature, concentration of sulfur dioxide, wear of ammunition, etc.). The rM node is acting as backup for M node. The concept of main operations available in the sensors' domain related to: managing of sensors in the domain, authentication of sensors and regeneration of the node credentials is presented. The concept is a proprietary solution developed by the authors of the paper.
