Mobility and security are two critical components of wireless networks. We request funding to enhance our Quail Ridge Wireless Mesh Network QuRiNet infrastructure for investigating fine-grained impact of mobility on network performance and security, and novel security mechanisms that exploit physical layer information and mobility to enhance network security. Our ultimate goal is to 1 build comprehensive and realistic models which can be used to analyze the impact of mobility on the network performance, quality of information, and security, and 2 develop robust and novel security mechanisms that exploit lower-layer characteristics. The equipment requested and their usage are summarized as follows. IEEE 802.11n nodes. They will greatly enhance the value of QuRiNet by increasing its network capacity. They will also allow us to study the impact of MIMO multiple-input multiple-output technology on our mobility modeling and security mechanisms. Signal analyzer. It provides analog demodulation and digital modulation analysis, which will allow us to pull out the physical layer information of the wireless channel. It will enable us to investigate fine-grained impact of mobility on physical layer metrics and study how these information can improve the performance of the proposed physical-layer security mechanisms. Gators. The gators will allow us to conduct large scale mobility test under different mobility patterns and speeds at QuRiNet.
