Security and privacy for wireless ad-hoc networks
MetadataShow full item record
The common belief of that mobile network makes security and privacy more difficult to establish is not always correct. Also the fact that several types of wireless technology make nodes vulnerable to monitoring and tracking is a common belief, and is often true. We propose a solution where security and privacy might be established between nodes when they are within short visible range of each other in order to exchange critical initial cryptographic credentials. The proposed solution also make sure that every digital track left behind will be useless for monitoring and tracking by rapidly change a nodes identification. We show a solution at a very generic level, and explain its functionality to fully self organized ad-hoc networks. We generalize even more by putting the core solution into several realistic scenarios and show various examples of how security and privacy aspects might be solved based on this solution. We provide a detailed investigation of the influence of such framework.
