With the universal presence of short-range connectivity technologies (e.g., Bluetooth and more recently, Wi-Fi direct) in the consumer electronics market, the Delay Tolerant-Network (DTN) model is becoming a viable alternative to the traditional infrastructural model. Proximity malware, which exploits the temporal dimension and distributed nature of DTNs in self-propagation, poses threats to users of new technologies. In this paper, the authors address the proximity malware detection and containment problem with explicit consideration for the unique characteristics of DTNs.
