Self Organized Quantum Key Authentication Technique for Secure Data Communication in Mobile Ad Hoc Network


Background /Objectives: To improve the security in Mobile Ad Hoc network (MANET) by means of a Self Organized Quantum Key Authentication (SO-QKA). Methods/Statistical Analysis: The key objective of SO-QKA technique is to improve data security and mobile node authentication in MANET. Initially, SO-QKA technique generates quantum key for mobile node data transmission along the route path in MANET. Next, SO-QKA technique formulates self organized key for every mobile node with its quantum key for corresponding data transmission at specific instances. With the help of generated self organized key, SO-QKA technique finds secure route for transmitting the data in MANET. Finally, SOQKA technique is performs key matching at the destination node where the verification of the mobile node is checked with the mobile node id of self organized key and data authentication is verified with quantum key and destination id. Findings: Experimental evaluation of SO-QKA technique is done with the performance metrics such as data loss rate, data transmission rate, security, execution time. Experimental analysis shows that the SO-QKA technique is able to improve the security and also improves the data transmission rate comparable to the state-of-the-art works. Applications/ Improvements: It can be further enlarged with implementation of new algorithm model with different parameters which improves high authentication and confidentiality
