Executive Summary

Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is becoming more and more popular in scientific, government, and general applications, but security system for MANET is still at infant stage. Currently, there are not many security systems that provide extensive security coverage for MANET. Moreover, most of these security systems assume nodes have infinite computation power and energy; an assumption that is not true for many mobiles. Versatile and ExtenSible System (VESS) is a powerful and versatile general-purpose security suite that comprises of modified versions of existing encryption and authentication schemes. VESS uses a simple and network-efficient but still reliable authentication scheme. The security suite offers four levels of security adjustments base on different encryption strength.
