A practical pairwise key distribution scheme is necessary for wireless sensor networks since sensor nodes are susceptible to physical capture and constrained in their resources. In this paper, we investigate a simple and practical scheme that achieves higher connectivities and perfect resilience with less resources, even in case of deployment errors.
