Executive Summary

The coupling of Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) and the Internet is gaining attention by researchers working towards future ubiquitous computing environments. In this paper, the authors focus on the situation that occurs when specialized, sensitive data are sent to the Internet from MANET nodes. These special data types are especially susceptible to security risks such as information leak and data falsification. Therefore, it is necessary for such special data to be forwarded by a secure/trusted gateway which is under control of a trusted network administrator. However, they assume there can be multiple gateways deployed in a MANET, where the cost ineffectiveness makes it difficult for a network administrator to simultaneously manage every gateway.
