An Efficient and User Privacy-Preserving Routing Protocol for Wireless Mesh Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) have emerged as a key technology for next generation wireless broadband networks showing rapid progress and inspiring numerous compelling applications. A WMN comprises of a set of Mesh Routers (MRs) and Mesh Clients (MCs), where MRs are connected to the Internet backbone through the Internet GateWays (IGWs). The MCs are wire-less devices and communicate among themselves over possibly multi-hop paths with or without the involvement of MRs. User privacy and security have been primary concerns in WMNs due to their peer-to-peer network topology, shared wireless medium, stringent resource constraints, and highly dynamic environment
