Protecting the data from intruders and increasing the network lifetime is a major constraint in Wireless Sensor Network. The lifetime of the network is determined by the amount of energy consumed by each node. In order to increase the network lifetime and protect the data, the security based clustering algorithm is proposed. It construct the clusters to reduce the energy consumption among the sensor nodes in which the cluster head collects and aggregate the data from the cluster members. A special node MDC collects and aggregates the data from cluster head and forwards them to Base station. The data are protected from intruders by authenticates the Cluster head by MDC using the shared secret key and the Digital Signature. The simulation results prove that our algorithm is more efficiently secure the data and achieves more energy savings than Time Stamp Protocol and Polynomial Points Sharing Protocol.
