Secure Communication in Mobile Ad-Hoc Network Using SATEM


Abstract :

To ensure fair and secure communication in Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs), the applications running in these
networks must be regulated by proper communication policies. However, enforcing policies in MANETs is challenging
because they lack the infrastructure and trusted entities encountered in traditional distributed systems. This project
presents the design and implementation of a policy enforcing mechanism based on trusted execution monitor built on top of the Trusted
Platform Module. Under this mechanism, each application or protocol has an associated policy. Two instances of an application running on
different may engage in communication only if these nodes enforce the same set of policies for both the application and the underlying protocols
used by the application. In this way, nodes can form trusted application centric networks. Before allowing a node to join such a network, Satem
verifies its trustworthiness of enforcing the required set of Policies. If any of them compromised, Stem disconnects the node from the network. We
demonstrate the correctness of our solutions through security, and its low overhead through performance evolution of the applications
