Securing Transport and Network Layer Using SNAuth-SPMAODV With WTLS in Mobile Ad hoc Networks for Military Scenario
A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a peer-to-peer wireless network where nodes can communicate with each other without any infrastructure. Due to this nature of MANET, it is possible that there could be some malicious and selfish nodes that try to compromise the routing protocol functionality and makes MANET vulnerable to Denial of Service attack in military communication environments. The ultimate goal of the security solutions for MANET is to provide security services, such as authentication, confidentiality, integrity, anonymity, and availability to mobile users. To achieve the goals, the security solution should provide complete protection across the entire protocol stack.
