Secure & trusted communication in emergency situations

Michalas, A., Bakopoulos, M., Komninos, N. & Prasad, N. R. (2012). Secure & trusted communication in emergency situations. Paper presented at the 35th IEEE Sarnoff Symposium (SARNOFF), 21 - 22 May 2012, Newark, USA. doi: 10.1109/SARNOF.2012.6222751


In this paper we propose SETS, a protocol with main aim to provide secure and private communication during emergency situations. SETS achieves security of the exchanged information, attack resilience and user’s privacy. In addition, SETS can be easily adapted for mobile devices, since field experimental results show the effectiveness of the protocol on actual smart-phone platforms.
