Prakash, AbhinavRendering Secured Connectivity in a Wireless IoT Mesh Network with WPAN's and VANET's
PhD, University of Cincinnati, 2017, Engineering and Applied Science: Computer Science and Engineering
A ubiquitous pervasive network incorporates today’s Internet of Things/Internet of Everything Paradigm: Everything becomes smart with at least one microprocessor and a network interface. All these are under an umbrella of IoT/IoE paradigm where everything is network capable and connected. In most of the cases, these devices have multiple microprocessors and network interfaces at their disposal. In such a scenario, bringing every application to specific network on the same platform is critical, specifically for Sensor Networks, Cloud, WPANs and VANETs. While, enforcing and satisfying the requirements of CIA triad with non-repudiation universally is critical as this can solve multiple existing problems of ISM band exhaustion, leading to excessive collisions and contentions. Cooperative Interoperability also enables universal availability of data across all platforms which can be reliable and fully synchronized. Plug and play universal usability can be delivered. Such a network necessitates robust security and privacy protocols, spanning uniformly across all platforms. Once, reliable data access is made available, it leads to an accurate situation aware decision modeling. Simultaneous multiple channel usage can be exploited to maximize bandwidth otherwise unused. Optimizing Content delivery in hybrid mode which will be the major chunk of network traffic as predicted for near future of IoE. Now, such a proposed hybrid network does sound very complicated and hard to establish and maintain. However, this is the future of networks with huge leaps of technological advancement and ever dropping prices of hardware coupled with immensely improved capabilities, such a hybrid ubiquitous network can be designed and deployed in a realistic scenario. In this work, we go through not only looking into the issues of the large scale hybrid WMN, but also minutely discovering every possible scenario of direct mesh clients or sub-nets (VANET, Cloud or BAN) associated to it. Further, we propose to design and implement a robust all around security and privacy for each and every possible unit of such a large network. Special focus is provided to the application of a BAN in medical usage with intricate details is provided in form of our recent endeavor, along with an ongoing work for a wearable device patent, Smart Shoe (Patent Pending). The concepts explained with this example are equally applicable to any such Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPAN’s).
