Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) is a continuously self-configuring, infrastructure-less network of mobile devices connected without wires and also it is an open network environment where nodes can join and leave the network freely. Hence, the dynamic natures of MANETs is not secure than the wired networks. To overcome this issue, the Cluster-based Certificate Revocation with Vindication Capability (CCRVC) scheme is proposed. In the meanwhile nodes forms a cluster consists of a Cluster Head with

Each node should have to acquire valid certificates from the Certification Authority (CA) before it can join the network that is responsible for distribution and management of certificates to all nodes and also CA is responsible for updating two lists, Warning list and Black list. Both the lists are used to hold the accusing and accused nodes information, respectively. Experimental results show that the proposed CCRVC scheme is effective and efficient to provide efficient and secure communication.
