Mutual Authentication using improved Chaotic Maps to remove packet dropping attack from MANETs


C Atheeq* and M. Munir Ahmed Rabbani  


Background: MANET is self-organized wireless network with no infrastructure. Especially data transfer from one system to another system needs to be done in a secure way. In order to provide data integrity, authentication plays an important role in data communication. RSA, ECC are widely used algorithms in real world but authentication using these algorithms is time consuming. Towards this, various algorithms came into existence with different security primitives. However, it is important to study the key agreement process among these security mechanisms. We have studied the patents related to secure end to end communication in MANET.

Methods: Therefore our aim is to design chaos based mutual authentication algorithm that takes less time than these existing algorithms and evaluate with respect to attack resiliency, Packet delivery fraction, delay, throughput and overhead.

Results: Simulation results show the result of the proposed mechanism and gives better performance in terms of said parameters.

Conclusion: Comparison of proposed system presents better results when compared to RSA, ECC in terms of key generation mechanism.
