Discovery and Verification of Neighbor Positions in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

ABSTRACT:

A growing number of ad hoc networking protocols and location-aware services require that mobile nodes learn the position of their neighbors. However, such a process can be easily abused or disrupted by adversarial nodes. In absence of a priori trusted nodes, the discovery and verification of neighbor positions presents challenges that have been scarcely investigated in the literature. In this paper, we address this open issue by proposing a fully distributed cooperative solution that is robust against independent and colluding adversaries, and can be impaired only by an overwhelming presence of adversaries. Results show that our protocol can thwart more than 99 percent of the attacks under the best possible conditions for the adversaries, with minimal false positive rates.

EXISTING SYSTEM:

Geographic routing in spontaneous networks, data gathering in sensor networks, movement coordination among autonomous robotic nodes, location-specific services for handheld devices, and danger warning or traffic monitoring in vehicular networks are all examples of services that build on the availability of neighbor position information. The correctness of node locations is therefore an all important issue in mobile networks, and it becomes particularly challenging in the presence of adversaries aiming at harming the system

 

 

DISADVANTAGES OF EXISTING SYSTEM:

  • Ø Correctly establish their location in spite of attacks feeding false location information, and
  • Ø Verify the positions of their neighbors, so as to detect adversarial nodes announcing false locations.

PROPOSED SYSTEM:

In this paper, we focus on the latter aspect, hereinafter referred to as neighbor position verification (NPV for short). Specifically, we deal with a mobile ad hoc network, where a pervasive infrastructure is not present, and the location data must be obtained through node-to-node communication. Such a scenario is of particular interest since it leaves the door open for adversarial nodes to misuse or disrupt the location-based services. For example, by advertising forged positions, adversaries could bias geographic routing or data gathering processes, attracting network traffic and then eavesdropping or discarding it. Similarly, counterfeit positions could grant adversaries unauthorized access to location-dependent services, let vehicles forfeit road tolls, disrupt vehicular traffic or endanger passengers and drivers.

ADVANTAGES OF PROPOSED SYSTEM:

  • Ø Our NPV scheme is compatible with state-of the-art security architectures, including the ones that have been proposed for vehicular networks.
  • Ø It is lightweight, as it generates low overhead traffic.
  • Ø It is robust against independent and colluding adversaries
  • Ø It leverages cooperation but allows a node to perform all verification procedures autonomously
