Michalas, A., Oleshchuk, V. A., Komninos, N. & Prasad, N. R. (2011). Privacy-preserving scheme for mobile ad hoc networks. In: ISCC. 2011 IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications (ISCC), 28 June - 1 July 2011, Kerkyra, Greece. doi: 10.1109/ISCC.2011.5983930


This paper proposes a decentralized trust establishment protocol for mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), where nodes establish security associations. In order to achieve privacy and security, we use homomorphic encryption and polynomial intersection so as to find the intersection of two sets. The first set represents a list of recommenders of the initiator and the second set is a list of trusted recommenders of the responder. The intersection of the sets represents a list of nodes that recommend the first node and their recommendations are trusted by the second node. In our experimental results we show that our scheme is effective even if there are 30 trusted nodes.
