Secured Bilateral Rendezvous Using Self Interference Cancellation in Wireless Networks
Secure transmission among mobile nodes in hostile environments has often been achieved by trading off security with communication latency. However, in time critical applications (e.g., tactical wireless networks, civilian law enforcement operations, homeland security missions, etc.), latency is more critical than any other parameters. Long latency is generally attributed to the time required by authentication in the presence of eavesdroppers and jammers. To address the latency issue, this paper proposes a Secured Bilateral Rendezvous (SBR) protocol that reduces the communication latency while guaranteeing protection. SBR performs neighbor detection before authentication.
