Short Term Course : Department of CSE@NIT Hamirpur


Aim and Objectives of Course
In recent years, mobile, ad hoc and wireless sensor networks have enjoyed a tremendous rise in popularity due to their applications in a large variety of civilian and military environments such as residential, enterprise, emergency situations, disaster recoveries, people on the move and computer-to-computer direct connectivity. Therefore, such networks are designed to operate in widely varying environments; from military networks to low power sensor networks and other embedded systems. However, these networks introduce new security challenges due to their dynamic topology, severe resource constraints, and absence of a trusted infrastructure. 
Security is an important issue for wireless and mobile ad hoc and sensor networks, especially for applications such as military, homeland security, financial institutions, and many other areas. Such security threats take advantage of protocol weaknesses in mobile ad hoc and sensor networks as well as operating system vulnerabilities to attack network applications. With regard to such security aspects, there is an increasing demand for measures to guarantee and fully attain authentication, confidentiality, data integrity, privacy, access control, nonrepudiation, and availability of mobile ad hoc and sensor networks.
The proposed course will help academicians, engineers, researchers, and professionals to stay abreast of the latest security challenges in wireless, mobile, ad hoc and sensor networks and recent developments to address them. The course will also provide an excellent opportunity for participants to decide possible research directions.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Applications and evolution of mobile ad hoc and sensor systems
  • Secure PHY and MAC protocols
  • Key management
  • Security under resource constraints
  • Performance and security tradeoffs
  • Data replication and caching security
  • Secure data aggregation
  • Cooperation based secure systems and services
  • Intrusion detection and tolerance
  • Secure location services
Registration Fees
No registration fee will be charged from the participants.
