Cross-layer design for energy-efficient secure multicast communications in ad hoc networks


This paper considers the problem of secure multicast in an energy-constrained wireless environment. We present an analytical formulation of the energy expenditure associated with the communication overhead of key management and highlight its dependence on the network topology and the key distribution method. We show that the optimal solution of this… (More)
