Secure links are established between the nodes to provide guaranteed high security, integrity and better performance in wireless sensor network. In order to achieve secure link between the nodes, the concept of trust and certification authority is integrated to combat against the misbehaving entities to deal with the security challenges. The fuzzy based technique is employed by the cluster head to differentiate the nodes as trusted or malicious by issuing the services only to the trusted node and eliminates the misbehaving nodes. The proposed scheme is more reliable and provides improved security in military network. Existing random seed distribution with transitory master key scheme – a hybrid approach of random key distribution and transitory master key may provide the resilience and the connectivity but still the security is degraded, if the secret key is compromised. Even though a number of key management schemes have been used, none of them are satisfactory. Compared to the existing scheme, the proposed scheme provides better security features but also ensures enemy intruders to stay away from the network. Hence, it offers good communication with sufficient connectivity among the nodes; hence it could be used in military and remote area communication.
