In this paper, we suggest the idea of separately treating the connectivity and communication model of a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). We then propose a novel connectivity model for a WSN using first order Reed-Muller Codes. While the model has a hierarchical structure, we have shown that it works equally well for a Distributed WSN. Though one can use any communication model, we prefer to use the communication model suggested by Ruj and Roy  for all computations and results in our work. Two suitable secure (symmetric) cryptosystems can then be applied for the two different models, connectivity and communication respectively. By doing so we have shown how resiliency and scalability are appreciably improved as compared to Ruj and Roy .
