Abstract: Wireless sensor network is a peculiar kind of ad hoc network, consists of hundreds of tiny, resource constrained as sensor nodes. Clustering is a demanding task in such environment mainly due to the unique constraints such as energy efficiency and dynamic topology. In this paper, a novel energy efficient cluster-based routing algorithm is proposed on which hierarchical identity-based digital signature (IBDS) and enhanced-identity-based digital signature (EIBDS) scheme is concerning in grid-based wireless sensor networks. Firstly we form clusters using multi-parameters-based type-2 fuzzy logic algorithm. This paper proposes an improved ant colony optimisation algorithm, which optimises the energy consumption on data transfer in a WSN. Each node in a sensor network is authenticated using elliptic curve cryptography (ECC). After a set of simulation tests on NS-3 simulator, our proposed work achieves good performance for various metrics.

Keywords: grid-based WSN; security; hierarchical identity-based digital signature; elliptic curve cryptography; ECC; clustering and routing.
