An Efficient Key Management Scheme with Key Agreement to Mitigate Malicious Attacks for Wireless Mesh Network
In the recent times the IT industry has been witnessing rapid development in wireless communication technologies such as 3G, 4G, etc. Wireless Mesh Network is one such promising wireless communication technology which provides high bandwidth internet connectivity in a sizable geographic area at a much lower cost than with classic WiFi networks. WMN consists of wireless entities such as Mesh Routers (MRs), Mesh Clients (MCs) and Internet Gateways (IGs) are organized in an arbitrary mesh topology and form the wireless mesh back bone. Due to the mobility of the Mesh Clients, great challenges arise in securing the WMNs from various kinds of attacks.
