application.
Appropriate cluster head (CH) election is one such issue,
which can reduce the energy consumption dramatically.
Low energy adaptive clustering hierarchy (LEACH) is
the most famous hierarchical routing protocol, where the
CH selection is in rotation basis based on a probabilistic
threshold value and only CHs are allowed to send the
information to the base node (BS). But in this proposed
approach, a K-hop neighbor clustering protocol is used
among the CHs who can easily send the information to
the mobile BS by choosing suitable CH descriptors, such
as remaining battery power, mobility of BS, and
centrality of the clusters. The results have been derived
from NS-2 simulator.

every antenna node in the network should communicate
with neighbor nodes for synchronized transformation. The transmission of information between antenna nodes
is authenticated in a hop-by-hop approach. This helps in
the detection of an unauthorized node. Thus, an
unauthorized node cannot insert false information
without it being detected.
