An Acknowledgment-Based Approach for the Detection of Routing Misbehavior in MANETs 2007 1892 We study routing misbehavior in MANETs (Mobile Ad Hoc Networks) in this paper. In general, routing protocols for MANETs are designed based on the assumption that all participating nodes are fully cooperative. However, due to the open structure and ...
Analyzing Multi-Channel Medium Access Control Schemes With ALOHA Reservation 2006 208 In order to improve the throughput performance of Medium Access Control (MAC) schemes in wireless communication networks, some researchers proposed to divide a single shared channel into several sub-channels: one as control subchannel and the other...
Analyzing Split Channel Medium Access Control Schemes 2006 235 In this work, we analyze and evaluate the maximum achievable throughput of split-channel MAC schemes that are based on the RTS/CTS (Ready-To-Send/Clear-To-Send) dialogue and that rely on pure ALOHA or on p-persistent Carrier Sensing Multip...
Broadcast Scheduling in Interference Environment 2008 233 Broadcast is a fundamental operation in wireless networks, and nai¨ve flooding is not practical, because it cannot deal with interference. Scheduling is a good way of avoiding interference, but previous studies on broadcast scheduling algorithms all...
Can Multiple Subchannels Improve the Delay Performance of RTS/CTS-based MAC Schemes? 2009 239 We analyze the delay performance of RTS/CTSbased (Request-To-Send/Clear-To-Send) multi-channel MAC (Medium Access Control) schemes for wireless networks. These schemes usually employ multiple data subchannels for data transmission and one control...
Dual Busy Tone Multiple Access (DBTMA)— A Multiple Access Control Scheme for Ad Hoc Networks 2002 417 In ad hoc networks, the hidden- and the exposed-terminal problems can severely reduce the network capacity on the MAC layer. To address these problems, the ready-to-send and clear-to-send (RTS/CTS) dialogue has been proposed in the literature. Ho...
Evaluating Opportunistic Multi-Channel MAC: Is Diversity Gain Worth the Pain? 2013 23 We evaluate the performance of an opportunistic multi-channel medium access control protocol and compare it to that of the corresponding single-channel MAC (S-MAC) and a non-opportunistic multi-channel MAC (M-MAC). We do this in three different setti...
Fast Authentication in Multi-Hop Infrastructure-based Communication 2014 19 Multi-hop infrastructure-based communication is expected to play a vital role in supporting high data-rate multimedia access to mobile devices. The advantages are significant in highly mobile scenarios such as intra-vehicular networks. However, mobil...
INSENS: Intrusion-tolerant routing for wireless sensor networks 2006 986 This paper describes an INtrusion-tolerant routing protocol for wireless SEnsor NetworkS (INSENS). INSENS securely and efficiently constructs tree-structured routing for wireless sensor networks (WSNs). The key objective of an INSENS network is to to...
A Key Predistribution Scheme for Sensor Networks Using Deployment Knowledge 2006 4509 To achieve security in wireless sensor networks, it is important to be able to encrypt messages sent among sensor nodes. Keys for encryption purposes must be agreed upon by communicating nodes. Due to resource constraints, achieving such key agreem...
Medium Access Control Protocols for Ad-Hoc Wireless Networks: A Survey 2006 829 Studies of ad hoc wireless networks are a relatively new field gaining more popularity for various new applications. In these networks, the Medium Access Control (MAC) protocols are responsible for coordinating the access from active nodes. These pro...
Multi-hop/Direct Forwarding (MDF) for Static Wireless Sensor Networks 2009 328 The success of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) depends largely on efficient information delivery from target areas toward data sinks. The problem of data forwarding is complicated by the severe energy constraints of sensors in WSNs. In this work, we ...
Multipath Key Establishment for Wireless Sensor Networks Using Just-Enough Redundancy Transmission 2008 266 In random key predistribution techniques for wireless sensor networks, a relatively small number of keys are randomly chosen from a large key pool and are loaded on the sensors prior to deployment. After deployment, each sensor tries finding a comm...
On Optimizing the Backoff Interval for Random Access Schemes 2003 281 To improve the channel throughput and the fairness of random access channels, we propose a new backoff algorithm, namely, the sensing backoff algorithm (SBA). A novel feature of the SBA scheme is the sensing mechanism, in which every node modifie...
On search sets of expanding ring search in wireless networks 2008 603 We focus on the problem of finding the best search set for expanding ring search (ERS) in wireless networks.
