A pervasive network is one in which the estimation of the capability of the nodes to arrange themselves autonomously in the network environment and exchange information through these networks. All types of ad-hoc networks come under pervasive network. In this dynamically changing environment, the authors cannot provide security in the best manner. So, they propose Believer Based Protected and Efficient Routing (BBPER). In their proposed system, each autonomous node present in the pervasive network maintains the list of believer nodes in its transmission range. Initially, each node is preloaded with the randomly generated prime number. The believer node is selected by sending a confront message as a puzzle to its neighbor.
