Behavior of Elliptic Curve Cryptosystems for the Wormhole Intrusion in MANET: A Survey and Analysis


Felipe Tellez, Jorge Ortiz


Vol. 11  No. 9  pp. 1-12


This article presents a study about the performance with different applications of Elliptic Curve Cryptography in Wireless Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks (MANET) to determine their effectiveness in security during the Wormhole intrusion. The aim is to provide answers to questions like: Is it an elliptic curve cryptosystem applied to Ad-Hoc networks sufficient to prevent, detect, evade and/or eliminate Wormhole attacks? If not, should it live with any of the proposals that have already been raised to counteract this attack?, What is the behavior of the various solutions of this type of cryptography, which claim to offer security, when are confronted with a Wormhole tunnel? We present a state of the art about Wormhole, the different types that exist, and the proposed solutions to counter it are classified. We review the various solutions based on Elliptic Curve Cryptography posed to security in Ad-Hoc networks and then analyze their performance against the requirements to be met when providing security against malicious tunnel. In the end, is expected to conclude as cryptography, and especially for this study, the elliptic curves, ensures security against Wormhole tunnel.
