JR-SND: Jamming-Resilient Secure Neighbor Discovery in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
Source: Arizona State University
Secure neighbor discovery is fundamental to Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) deployed in hostile environments and refers to the process in which two neighboring nodes exchange messages to discover and authenticate each other. It is vulnerable to the jamming attack in which the adversary intentionally sends radio signals to prevent neighboring nodes from exchanging messages. Anti-jamming communications often rely on spread-spectrum techniques which depend on a spreading code common to the communicating parties but unknown to the jammer.
