Security Aspects and Challenges in Mobile Adhoc Networks
The traditional notion of a Adhoc wireless network is one in which there are a few Base Stations or Access Points and a number of Mobile Stations or Nodes. Security has become a primary concern in order to provide protected communication between mobile nodes in a hostile environment. The Adhoc networks pose a number of nontrivial challenges to security design, such as open peer-to-peer network architecture, shared wireless medium and network topology. These challenges clearly make a case for building multifence security solutions that achieve both road protection and desirable network performance.
