Energy Efficient Recognition Protocol for Ad Hoc Networks
The recognition is a new security principle closely related to authentication. Low-power ad hoc networks with no pre-deployment information require the less authoritative security in recognition. The authors have studied previously proposed low-power protocols according to the environment and security model presented. They have implemented the New Message Recognition Protocol (NMRP) and Zero Common Knowledge (ZCK) protocol in C and matlab. From their comparison between NMRP and ZCK, they observed that NMRP satisfied the properties of low power environment.
