"Security of Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs)"
This talk will initially provide an overview of Telcordia's cyber security research. The talk will then focus on Telcordia's research in securing MANETs. MANETs are networks that do not require a fixed infrastructure (like base stations or access points) that are typically used in commercial wireless networks. In MANETs, messages are relayed from node to node from the source of a packet towards the destination. If there is a "sufficient" number of nodes covering a specific area, communication between the source and the destination can be achieved. MANETs have attracted a lot of interest in applications where fixed infrastructure may not be available or has been destroyed such as vehicle to vehicle communication, military networks, and disaster relief support. The key value of MANETs is their ability to allow nodes to join forces quickly to form a network. Achieving the potential value of MANETs in a secure manner though is a significant challenge. This talk will discuss Telcordia's research and progress in this area.
