Full Description
Localization is a critical process in mobile ad hoc networks and wireless sensor networks. Wireless sensor node or MANET devices need to know the network's location or its relative location, with respect to the rest of the network neighbors. However, due to the open spectrum nature of wireless communication, it is subject to attacks and intrusions. Hence the wireless network synchronization needs to be both robust and secure. Furthermore, issues such as energy constraints and mobility make the localization process even more challenging. Secure Localization and Time Synchronization for Wireless Sensor and Ad Hoc Networks presents the latest research results in the area of secure localization for both wireless mobile ad hoc networks and wireless sensor networks.
