Niroj Kumar Pani, Bikram Keshari Ratha, Sarojananda Mishra . A Highly Dynamic Locality Aware Secure Data Availability Routing Framework for Ad Hoc Clouds. Communications on Applied Electronics. 6, 4 ( Dec 2016), 13-19. DOI=10.5120/cae2016652461
Ad hoc clouds in an integration of mobile ad hoc network over the cloud computing environment. In ad hoc clouds since the infrastructure setup is implemented over existing sporadically available, non-exclusive (primarily used for some other purpose) mobile devices they offer an attractive alternative to the existing data center cloud model in terms of cost and computational overhead. In this paper, we propose a secure routing framework for ad hoc cloud environments that optimizes itself depending upon the locality of nodes with respect to the cloudlets that form the ad hoc cloud. The scheme not only establishes a secure and reliable route between two nodes but also supports secure data packet forwarding. We specify the design of the protocol and examines its capacity to withstand possible security threats.
