Objectives: This paper presents Secure Authentication Framework Design and Routing Metric based Communication in Multi-hop WMNs (SAF&RM). Methods/Statistical Analysis: In this paper, we use the PKC based pseudonyms that builds secure authentication framework with conditional privacy and Probabilistic Transmission Count (PTC) routing metric for improving reliable communications in WMN. Findings: The combination of MAC-layer retransmission-based reliability and link quality awareness effects are captured for designing the PTC. Applications/Improvements: This approach aims to diminish the sum of overall forwarding nodes in the routing and reduce the bandwidth consumption of the network which ensure high end-to-end packet delivery rate and improve the secure transmission in WMN.
