An emerging research in today is based on monitoring physiological information of human being at any place and any time using advanced technology of Wireless Body Sensor Network (WBSN). The most challenging problems in WBSN is securing and increasing the transmission performance of data in a wireless communication network. To increase the security and reliable transmission of data in WBSN, this paper proposes a light weight cryptographic HIGHT(High Security and Light Weight) technique combines with ECG (electrocardiogram) signal based establishment of key for secure communication in Wireless Body Sensor Network (WSBN). For a reliable transmission of data, utilize the clustering technique between patient's body sensors to a nearby base station. In this technique, body aggregator connects with all peripheral nodes, which allows simplified routing in network and improve high data throughput in Body Sensor Network (BSN).
