Trust in Multi-hop Wireless Networks

Prasant Mohapatra

Trust is a broader concept quantifying networks that subsumes security, performance, and reliability in vulnerable environments. In this talk, we will go beyond the traditional issues of performance and reliability issues in mesh networks, and examine other key metrics that are valuable in the applications where mesh networks have found wider usage. Several interesting aspects of provenance and its impact on network trust will be presented. In addition, we will also discuss how the evolution of social networking concepts impacts trust in wireless mesh networks. Several pointers for future research along with their corresponding motivation will be presented.
