Protected Cluster Formation Using Two-hop Conformity test and Broadcast Communication

Authors(2) :-G. Raju, V. Ramesh

In wireless sensor networks, cluster is usually adopted as a result of it facilitates the energy savings of nodes and consequently extends the network life. during this paper, we propose a novel and secure cluster formation scheme. First, our scheme generates larger sized clusters to boost the quality of clusters. Second, our scheme produces healthier clusters by evicting a lot of compromised nodes from clusters. Last, our scheme saves the energy of nodes by using broadcast communication. Simulation results prove that our scheme is more robust against compromised nodes and more energy-efficient than different scheme.
