In this research, we study and develop various security measures particularly designed for MANET.
|Intrusion Detection for MANET|
Many of the intrusion detection techniques developed on a fixed wired network are not applicable in MANET due to it special network characteristics. Here we are studying how to do intrusion detection effectively in this new environment. We have developed an anomaly detection model that can satisfy this goal.
In MANET, centralized authentication infrastructure (PKI for instance) is extremely difficult to provide. Due to the dynamic nature and frequent topology changes, it makes sense to minimize the dependence of authentication process on a centralized server. Our goal is to develop distributed authentication systems that are based on a localized and distributed decision-making architecture. We are studying such distributed authentication schemes based on threshold cryptograph and the "web-of-trust" model.
