Light weight approach for secure backbone construction for MANETs - 2021

Light weight approach for secure backbone construction for MANETs

Research Area:  Mobile Ad Hoc Networks


MANET is a self-organized and infrastructure-free network. Therefore, the use of Virtual Backbone Network is becoming popular nowadays because it provides stability to MANETs. In virtual backbone network only selected nodes stores the topological information about the network. So, only the selected nodes are involved in the routing of the messages. In past recent years, many virtual backbone construction algorithms have been proposed by the researchers but not much work has been done in the security of virtual backbone network. In this paper, we discuss this issue by proposing a secure lightweight backbone construction approach. We have used a lightweight distributed approach for securing the backbone network, due to which our proposed approach is capable to detect many existing attacks without draining out the resources of the nodes. We have used the NS-2 simulator to check the efficiency of our proposed approach. Simulation results show that implementing our proposed approach does not drain the resources of the nodes and it also retains a high degree of detection rate without bringing in any significant traffic.
