Dynamic networks allow cyber physical devices to connect opportunistically to share and process data gathered from the physical world. This project concerns dynamic networks of emerging cyber physical devices, such as smart phones and on-board embedded computing devices that combine sensors with general-purpose computing environments. These dynamic networks provide a powerful platform of networked devices with significant computation, communication and storage capabilities.
The objective of this research is to develop energy-efficient integrity estab- lishment techniques for dynamic networks of cyber physical devices. In such dynamic networks, devices connect opportunistically and perform general-purpose computations on behalf of other devices. However, some devices may be malicious in intent and affect the integrity of computation. The approach is to develop new trust establishment mechanisms for dynamic networks.
