Abstract: Adhoc Networks are becoming a very important tool for many nonconventional civil and military applications. In this adverse environment it is very difficult for the source to send the information to the destination in multicasting style. The main requirement of the network is to provide the security and promising the message integrity. To solve the various problems in the multicasting style for very large adhoc networks a Modified Tiered Authentication Multicast scheme is developed. This scheme has two steps, the first step includes generation of keys and these keys are used to form the Message Authentication Code for every packet sent to the receiver. The second step includes the Message Digest Algorithm 5 is used for message integrity. The movement of nodes in the mobile adhoc network quickly changes the topology resulting in the increase of the overhead message in topology maintenance. There are many clustering schemes are proposed for many adhoc networks. This paper presents on the performance of the Modified TAM protocol in different clustering schemes such as Distance Based Clustering and Weighted Based Clustering. Comparing the generated results from various clustering schemes by using Modified TAM protocol and decide which clustering scheme is better for implementing the Modified TAM protocol.
