Nodes in MANETs lack the protection offered by firewalls in infrastructure-based networks because malicious nodes can roam into the vicinity of another node and start launching attacks. This paper presents a distributed mechanism that allows trusted nodes to create protected networks in MANETs. A protected network is created to run a specific application and enforce a common network access control policy associated with that application. To become a member in the protected network, a node has… CONTINUE READING
