Abstract: Machine type communication (MTC) is a significant approach for communication in the long-term evaluation (LTE) networks. This paper intends to introduce a new cluster-based authentication model for MTC in the LTE network. At first, the nodes in LTE network are subjected under the clustering process via k-means approach. However, for the selection of optimal cluster head this paper establishes a novel hybrid approach termed as wolf insisted Jaya algorithm (WI-JA) that hybrid the concept of both Jaya algorithm (JA) and grey wolf optimisation (GWO) algorithms. As a novelty, in this work, all the selected cluster head involves the records of all the remaining nodes exists in network, and this will be handled via block chain technology. Finally, in the authentication phase, authenticate to the chosen cluster head via elliptic curve cryptography (ECC). The performance of the presented framework was evaluated and proved over other conventional models with respect to certain measures.
