Here is another M.Sc. term apper of mine, covering the topic of Group Key Agreement Protocols on Wireless Mesh Networks.
This M.Sc. term paper is presented to the
Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Sciences
of the Ruhr-University of Bochum
Chair of Network and Data Security
of the Ruhr-University of Bochum,
Prof. Jörg Schwenk
Nowadays networking is more than implementing static wired network infrastructure. The
utilisation of wireless agile network constructs, represents a well established build-up on the “old
world” and in some cases the only feasible solution. Therefore the aspects, concerning the
dynamics, stability, security and performance issues of such “new world” networks are still of great
interest of the researchers. An important approach to represent an appropriate security level of
dynamic wireless networks is utilised via Group Key Agreement Protocols. In most cases, the
reader can find information, regarding these protocols, in literature, concerning Mobile Ad-Hoc
Networks. Though, there are not enough publications on the topic of Group Key Agreement
Protocols[GKAPs] for Wireless Mesh Networks[WMN], moreover on the performance issues of
their utilisation. We shall consider this as a exciting challenge for research on the topic of
Distributed Key Agreement Protocols.
The current term paper should represent a discussion over the security aspects of WMN, the
performance of Group Key Agreement Protocols for Wireless Mesh Networks, represent methods,
concerning these performance aspects and illustrate the GKAPs by means of their classification.
