In this paper, we propose a new biometric-based user authentication mechanism in heterogeneous wireless sensor networks. The proposed protocol provides strong authentication compared to traditional related password-based schemes and achieves good properties such as works without synchronized clock, freely changes password, low computation costs and mutual authentication. Our scheme establishes a symmetric secret session key shared between the user and a sensor node so that the secret session key can be used later for secure future communications between them. Moreover, the proposed scheme provides unconditional security against node capture attack and it is also resilient against different attacks.
