Abstract:  This paper provides a stateoftheart survey of privacypreserving range query processing techniques in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). We first introduce the research models, including network models, adversary models and performance evaluation models. Then, we classify existing related work into several types according to privacy preservation techniques, such as Bucketing Scheme, Prefix Membership Verification, and Orderpreserving Encryption. We further elaborate the key mechanisms of typical protocols. Performance analysis and comparison show that existing work cannot balance privacy, integrity, efficiency and accuracy. Finally, we provide some suggestions for future research.

Key words: wireless sensor networks, range query, privacy preservation
