IdSRF: ID-based secure routing framework for wireless ad-hoc networks

Document Type

Conference Proceeding


In this paper, we propose an ID-based secure routing framework (IdSRF) for the secure routing in wireless ad-hoc networks. It uses an ID-based signature scheme without certificates, which has two advantages compared with previous solutions. First, it has a low overhead in communication, computation and storage. Second, it can protect changeable fields in the packet headers. Any misbehavior at an intermediate node can be detected. IdSRF is a generic scheme and can be applied to a variety of routing protocols. Our analysis shows that IdSRF can achieve those advantages with a manageable cost.
