Abstract:

Totally self-organized, self-operated, resource constrained nodes of MANETs (Mobile Ad-hoc Networks) require unique, distinct and persistent identity per node in order for their security protocols to be viable. MANET is a wireless multihop network formed by a set of mobile nodes which do not rely on an established infrastructure. The network relies on the collaboration of nodes to forward the packet to each other. While building MANETS for civilian applications some nodes tend to be disruptive or manage to save their resources through selfish behaviour. Thus the significantly degrade the performance. To cope with this, nodes of such behaviour have to detect and isolate. Random Key Pre-distribution (RKP) scheme has used to avoid the effect of selfish and malicious nodes in the network. RKP is a cryptographic approach to reduce the detection time, reduce the overhead and increase the precision of detection and improve the performance of the system.
