Traditional routing protocols as TCP/IP can not be directly used in WSN, so special data-centric routing protocols must be established. The raised data-centric routing protocols can not identify the sensor nodes, because many nodes work under a monitoring task, and the source of data is not so important some times. The sensor node in the network can not judge weather data is come from the some sink node. What’s more, the traditional method use IP to identify sensors in Internet is not suitable for WSN. In this paper, we propose a new naming scheme to identify sensor nodes, which based on a description of sensor node, the description of a sensor node is hashed to a hash value to identify this sensor. The different description generates different identifier. Different from IP schema, this identifier is something about the information of the sensor node. In the above naming scheme, we propose a new data-centric routing mechanism. Finally, the simulation of the routing mechanism is carried out on MATLAB. The result shows our routing mechanism’s predominate increase when network size increase.
