Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are gaining popularity with each passing day because of their wide range of applications [1]. WSNs consist of sensor nodes, which are small in size and have wireless communication capability [2]. To increase the efficiency of the network, the sensor nodes are grouped in the form of Cluster, such a network of clusters is known as Clustered Wireless Sensor Network. In Clustered WSN, the base station keeps and maintains the record of all the sensor nodes in the network hence the load on the base station is more than any other sensor node in the network. This paper attempts to reduce the workload of base station, reduce memory consumption and maintains secure connectivity by using the concept of Exclusion Basis System (EBS) matrix. The paper is organized in five sections. Section I & II gives the overview of background and literature review. Section III explains the system architecture which gives the description of proposed scheme. Section IV describes the performance evaluation. Section V explains the future scope.
Keywords: WSN, Exclusion Basis System, Key Management, Secure Group Communication.
