Energy Efficient CCRVC Scheme for Secure Communications in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
A mobile ad hoc network is a self-configured wireless network in which any mobile node can freely access the network at any time without the need of any fixed infrastructures. Due to high dynamic characteristics, these types of networks are easily prone to various security attacks. There are various mechanisms which provide secure communication i.e., certificate revocation. In this paper, the main challenge of certificate revocation (i.e., to revoke the certificates of the intruders in order to permanently exclude them from the network activities) is accomplished by adopting CCRVC scheme that also deals with false accusations apart from outperforming the other techniques in case of revoking the intruders certificates.
