The IoT development area has drawn the attention of nowadays researchers, some of them made assumptions regarding the use of clustering in their key management schemes. For example, in CL-EKM (Certificateless Effective Key Management) protocol, cluster-heads are assumed to be with high-processing capabilities and deployed within a grid topology. In fact, this is only possible in a controlled environment. In a hostile environment, such as battlefields, this assumption cannot be satisfied. In this work, an enhancement of the CL-EKM scheme has been proposed by introducing a distributed clustering algorithm. The performance of the implemented and enhanced system proved our assumptions.
