Improving QOS in Cluster Based Certificate Revocation for Mobile Ad Hoc Network
Certificate revocation is an important security component in mobile ad hoc networks (MANET). Securing network from various kinds of Attacks (MANET) plays an important role. Certificate revocation mechanisms play an important role in securing a network. The main challenge of certificate revocation is to revoke certificates of malicious nodes promptly and accurately. In this paper we use Cluster based certificate Revocation with vindication capability (CCRVC) scheme. It’s possible to identify attackers from the network and permanently revoke the Certificate of Attacker node. And it revokes the accused node based on a single node’s accusation. However the certificate accusation and recovery mechanisms have some limitations. The number of nodes capable of accusing malicious nodes decreased over time. It eventually lead to case malicious nodes can no longer be revoked in timely manner. To overcome this problem we propose Threshold based mechanism approach to vindicate warned nodes as legitimate nodes or not. And it enhances effectiveness and efficiency. By this scheme we improve the reliability and accuracy.
