Robust key management services are central to ensuring security of mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). In this paper, a novel key management scheme for MANETs is introduced, which exploits advantages of identity-based signcryption mechanism combined with threshold cryptography. The major innovative aspect of this scheme is the use of on-line virtual private key generator (PKG) to provide private key updating services for client nodes and master secret key share refreshing services for all server… CONTINUE READING
