Securing Resource-Constrained Wireless Ad Hoc Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Huge interest and demand on services over information superhighway have pressed various telecommunications research fronts and led to a new form of future Internet consisting of wired and wireless segments where resource-constrained devices such as mobile devices, smart phones, palm pilots and wireless sensors may become integral parts of the Internet rather than access-only platforms. One of the key design problems is the security in such heterogeneous networks, particularly over wireless networks with resource constraints. In this tutorial paper, the authors discuss a novel approach to addressing security issues and articulate why and how the ID-based cryptography can be effectively applied to address various security problems in the resource-constrained wireless networks.
