Abstract: Mobile ad hoc networks are self created and self organized without the support of network infrastructure, consists of mobile devices, such as laptops, cell phones, etc. Security is one of the prime Issues in ad hoc network due to their rapidly change in topology and mobility of nodes. However, the infrastructure less and dynamic natures render them more vulnerable to various types of security attacks than the wired networks. We propose a Secure Communication architecture based on “BBCMS” clustering algorithm. In this algorithm elect cluster head (CH) according to its weight computed by combining a set of system parameters (Stability, Battery, connectivity … etc). It also overcomes some limits in Existed algorithms by defining new mechanisms as cluster dissection, assimilation. In the proposed architecture, the overall network is divided into clusters where the cluster-heads (CH) are connected by virtual networks. For secure data transmission, credential authority (CA) issues a certificate (X.509) to the requested node for authentication. The certificate of a node is renewed or rejected by CH, based on its trust counter value.
