Recently, wireless detector networks (WSNs) have been deployed for a good form of applications, including military sensing, and pursuit, patient standing watching, traffic flow watching, wherever sensory devices typically move between different locations. Securing knowledge and communications need suitable encoding key protocols. In this paper, we tend to propose a certificate less efficient key management (CL-EKM) protocol for secure communication in dynamic WSNs characterized by node mobility. The CL-EKM supports economic key updates once a node leaves or joins a cluster and ensures forward and backward key secrecy. The protocol conjointly supports economic key revocation for compromised nodes and minimizes the impact of a node compromise on the protection of alternative communication links. A security analysis of our theme shows that our protocol is effective in defensive against separate attacks. We implement CL-EKMin Contiki OS and simulate it mistreatment Cooja machine to assess its time, energy, communication, and memory performance.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
