An ad hoc wireless network is an autonomous self-organizing system ofmobile nodes connected by wireless links where nodes not in directrange can communicate via intermediate nodes. A common technique usedin routing protocols for ad hoc wireless networks is to establish therouting paths on-demand, as opposed to continually maintaining acomplete routing(More)
Modern wireless devices, such as those that implement the 802.11abg standards, utilize multiple transmission rates in order to accommodate a wide range of channel conditions. The use of multiple rates presents a significantly more complex challenge to ad hoc routing protocols than the traditional single rate model. The hop count routing metric, which is(More)
Ah hoc networks offer increased coverage by using multihop communication. This architecture makes services more vulnerable to internal attacks coming from compromised nodes that behave arbitrarily to disrupt the network, also referred to as Byzantine attacks. In this work, we examine the impact of several Byzantine attacks performed by individual or(More)
Survivable routing protocols are able to provide service in the presence of attacks and failures. The strongest attacks that protocols can experience are attacks where adversaries have full control of a number of authenticated nodes that behave arbitrarily to disrupt the network, also referred to as Byzantine attacks. This work examines the survivability of(More)
Attacks where adversaries have full control of a number of authenticated devices and behave arbitrarily to disrupt the network are referred to as Byzantine attacks. Traditional secure routing protocols are vulnerable to this class of attacks since they usually assume that once authenticated, a node can be trusted to execute the protocol correctly. We(More)
Routing in Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETS) has proved to be an extremely challenging research problem due to the high frequency of link changes in wireless mobile environments. Most known routing protocols struggle to maintain complex routing structures, e.g., <i>N</i> spanning trees, or use expensive (from the perspective of communications cost) methods(More)
An ad hoc wireless network is an autonomous self-organizing system of mobile nodes connected by wireless links where nodes not in direct range communicate via intermediary nodes. Routing in ad hoc networks is a challenging problem as a result of highly dynamic topology as well as bandwidth and energy constraints. In addition, security is critical in these(More)
Modern wireless devices, such as those that implement the 802.11b standard, utilize multiple transmission rates in order to accommodate a wide range of channel conditions. Traditional ad hoc routing protocols typically use minimum hop paths. These paths tend to contain long range links that have low effective throughput and reduced reliability in multi-rate(More)
We present the Pulse protocol which is designed for multi-hop wireless infrastructure access. While similar to the more traditional access point model, it is extended to operate across multiple hops. This is particularly useful for conference, airport, or large corporate deployments. In these types of environments where users are highly mobile, energy(More)
