Ad-hoc PAN and WIreless Sensor SEcure NETwork

Project description

Secure, dependable and trusted Infrastructures AWISSENET (Ad-hoc PAN & WIreless Sensor SEcure NETwork)

AWISSENET (Ad-hoc personal area network and WIreless Sensor SEcure NETwork) is a project focused on security and resilience across ad-hoc Personal Area Networks (PANs) and wireless sensor networks. AWISSENET motivation is to implement and validate a scalable, secure, trusted networking protocol stack, able to offer self-configuration and secure roaming of data and services over multiple administrative domains and across insecure infrastructures of heterogeneous ad-hoc and wireless tiny sensor networks. AWISSENET optimisations will be extended where applicable from networking up to the applications layer, focusing on three key principles:

  • Discovery, evaluation and selection of trusted routes based on multiple security metrics and key pre-distribution methods. The overall scheme must support secure routing even with disappearing nodes, multiple levels of in-network processing and multiple layers of aggregation. Moreover, to protect the secure routing of information from traffic analysis attacks, the project will research utilisation of dynamic obfuscation of relationships.
  • Secure Service Discovery, providing a network-level security framework, which will protect service discovery messages inside the AWISSENET, when crossing unknown domains or when interacting with public service providers.
  • Intrusion detection, intruder identification and recovery based on distributed trust to provide security against malicious attacks.
  • The AWISSENET results will be packed in an AWISSENET security toolbox, which will enable easy configuration and instant support of Ad-hoc PAN and WIreless Sensor SEcure NETworks. The proposed architecture and protocol toolbox will be prototyped and validated in a large trial of more than 100 sensor nodes. Over this trial, a number of PAN and sensor application scenarios will be validated e.g. disaster recovery and ambient intelligence in environments like industry, home, or roads.
