Abstract

Ad hoc networks provide flexible and adaptive networks with no fixed infrastructure and dynamic topology. Owe to the vulnerability nature of ad hoc network, there are lots of security threats that diminish the development of ad hoc networks. Therefore, to provide security for information of users and to preserve their privacy, it becomes mandatory to use cryptographic techniques to set up secure mobile ad hoc network. Earlier cryptographic method based on computational complexity ruins with the advent of fast computing computers. In this proposal, we proposed Secure Key Management (SKM) framework. We make use of McEliece algorithm embedded with Dispense Key designed for key generation and for the key distribution and it is highly scalable with respect to memory. The experimental result shows that our framework provides a high-performance platform to execute key generation, key distribution scenarios. SKM framework reduces execution time of encryption and decryption by minimizing the number of keys.
