Security Challenges in Ad Hoc Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Ad hoc networks are special networks that do not require an infrastructure. Nodes of such networks are usually mobile and wireless. Wireless nodes use a shared medium for communication, so they are able to communicate with many nodes directly provided they are within communication range of those nodes. In this paper, the authors present a study of secure ad hoc routing protocols for wireless Networks. Ad hoc network is a collection of nodes that is connected through a wireless medium forming rapidly changing topologies.
