In this paper we propose an infrastructure for a secure remote authentication, management and operation system for a distributed global wireless sensor network testbed. We base the design of the architecture on an existing well-established, widely deployed and frequently used authentication and authorization system developed to simplify inter-organizational access to web-resources. The proposed infrastructure
addresses the main challenges of a interconnected distributed sensor network
testbed, such as secure remote availability, multi-user access, confidentiality
and integrity. The paper further describes our perspective of a testbed workflow management and operation system aiming to provide a simple and comprehensive interface for remote wireless sensor network configuration and experimentation.
