Wireless Sensor Network has higher count of tiny sensor nodes in network. To perform the operations such as data transfer, communications, token transfer etc. at each node requires energy. With study of various research work for secure communication between Ch to Node and Ch to BS, we founded Certificate-Less Effective Key Management (CLEKM) protocol has better energy effective and secure routing. There are main four keys are discussed, the Cluster Head (CH) which has cluster key for the purpose of forwards message's inside the cluster. Pair-wise key shares the key to every node present in neighbor. The collected information is forwarded securely to base station by making use of individual key. When asymmetric schemes are used, maintenance of keys is easier, but they provide a lesser degree of security when compared to symmetric encryption schemes. In order to cope up with these shortcomings, we propose to use an improved version of the hybrid encryption scheme, which is a combination of Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and Elliptical Curve Cryptography (ECC) with cross encrypted keys for secure key exchange and node authentication and hybrid encryption for enhanced cipher-text security.
