Challenges (Spectrum allocation, Self-configuration, Medium
access control (MAC), Energy efficiency, TCP Performance,
Mobility management, Security & privacy, Routing protocols,
Multicasting, QoS, Service Location, Provision, Access)
Routing Protocol
Expected Properties of Ad-hoc Routing Protocols
A taxonomy for routing protocols in Mobile ad
Some common protocols (DSDV, AODV, DSR, ZRP, TORA)
Types of Attacks
Passive attacks
to decrypt traffic based on statistical analysis
Active attacks
To inject new traffic from authorized mobile stations,
based on known plaintext
Active attacks
To decrypt traffic, based on tricking the access point
Dictionary building attacks
Allows real-time automated decryption of all traffic
802.11 Security
Goals of 802.11 security
Access Control
Ensure that your wireless infrastructure is not used.
Data Integrity
Ensure that your data packets are not modified in transit.
Ensure that the contents of your wireless traffic is not
802.11 security consists of two subsystems
A data encapsulation technique called Wired
Equivalent Privacy (WEP)
An authentication algorithm called Shared Key
