Abstract:To provide in the wireless domain a level of dependability comparable to that in the wireline domain, this dissertation proposes an Inner-circle Consistency approach for wireless ad hoc networks. By exploiting the information and computation that is naturally replicated in the wireless network, the inner-circle consistency approach can stop/neutralize errors and attacks as soon as they are injected in the wireless network by faulty/malicious nodes. The inner-circle consistency idea leverages the same combination of replication, threshold cryptography, and custom hardware used in the wireline domain, yet it reformulates the intrusion and fault tolerance paradigm to take into account the limitations and the characteristics of wireless environments. The approach is demonstrated in two significant wireless scenarios: the neutralization of attacks against the Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol, and the neutralization of sensor errors in a wireless sensor network.
