Security of Self-Organizing Networks: Manet, Wsn, Wmn, Vanet
Pathan, Al-Sakib Khan
Reflecting recent advancements, Security of Self-Organizing Networks: MANET, WSN, WMN, VANET explores wireless network security from all angles. It begins with a review of fundamental security topics and often-used terms to set the foundation for the following chapters. Examining critical security issues in a range of wireless networks, the book proposes specific solutions to security threats.
Ideal for those with a basic understanding of network security, the text provides a clear examination of the key aspects of security in self-organizing networks and other networks that use wireless technology for communications. The book is organized into four sections for ease of reference:
- General Topics--Security of Wireless and Self-Organizing Networks
- Mobile Ad-Hoc Network and Vehicular Ad-Hoc Network Security
- Wireless Sensor Network Security
- Wireless Mesh Network Security
Highlighting potential threats to network security, most chapters are written in a tutorial manner. However, some of the chapters include mathematical equations and detailed analysis for advanced readers. Guiding you through the latest trends, issues, and advances in network security, the text includes questions and sample answers in each chapter to reinforce understanding.
