Securing Cluster Formation and Cluster Head Elections in Wireless Sensor Networks

  title={Securing Cluster Formation and Cluster Head Elections in Wireless Sensor Networks},
  author={Gicheol Wang and Gihwan Cho},
In wireless sensor networks, clustering plays a ver y important role for energy savings at each node beca use it reduces the number of transmissions through TDMA based communic ation. For secure clustering, it is very crucial to find compr omised nodes and remove them during the initial cluster formation pr ocess. If some nodes are compromised and survive from the exclusio n pr cess of normal nodes, they can make some nodes have a diffe rent membership view in the same cluster and consequentl y… CONTINUE READING
