Multilevel Access Control in a MANET for a Defense Messaging system using Elliptic Curve Cryptography

By J. Nafeesa Begum, K. Kumar and V. Sumathy


The trend of the Civilian society has moved from the industrial age focus on automation and scale towards information based on computing and communication. Today’s Warfare is also moving towards an information age paradigm based on information sharing, situational awareness, and distributed points of intelligence, command and control. A widely-networked fighting force is better able to share information about tactical situations that may be geographically widespread, asymmetric, and rapidly changing. Commanders must be able to better assess situations across broad theaters, with extensive data, voice, and especially video feeds as strategic inputs. Thus, network-centric warfare improves effectiveness at both the tactical "point of the spear " and in the achievement of broader strategic goals. Broadly disseminated knowledge assets enable fighting forces that must self-synchronize, even as they physically disperse to address dynamic battlefield conditions. The speed of decision has increased and command decisions must be rapidly relayed and implemented, t
