Detecting Malicious Entities in Wireless Mesh Networks

Abstract: Multi-hop wireless mesh networks provide a community with a communication infrastructure which gives the ability to have a single or few connections to the internet along with each other. The core philosophy is that each node in the network would route each other packets for the benefit of everyone in the mesh network. This can give rise to a malicious node taking advantage of the forwarding nature in the network. A malicious node can drop the packets that should be forwarded and only forward its own packets therefore decreasing the benefits of the network for nodes upstream from the "bad" node. We present a Random Tester Detection Protocol (RTDP) that will detect the malicious node. The protocol leverages the broadcast nature of wireless networks along with anonymous messages to detect the free riding nodes. The protocol is evaluated in a network simulator created using Java.
