An Efficient Trusted Computing Base for Routing in MANET's

Download Now Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors propose an approach to secure MANETs by employing low-complexity low-cost Trustworthy MANET Modules (TMM), which perform some trivial hard-wired functions involving simple logical operations and block-cipher operations. They describe the functionality of such TMMs to offer a sound Trusted Computing Base (TCB) for securing MANETs. They compare the performance of simulated MANET subnets which include non-cooperative nodes, employing the Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) protocol, to evaluate the efficacy of the proposed approach.
