Middleware Architectural Framework for Secured Services in MANETs

T. Abdul Razak, R. Balasubramanian


One of the major challenges in Mobile Ad hoc Networks is the deployment of consistent end-to-end Quality of Service (QoS) for streaming media services. Conferencing and content delivery are few specific applications which require multicasting over MANETs. They also have a great impact on mobility, quality of service support, and security. Since Mobile Ad hoc Networks neither possess fixed topology nor any in-built architecture, the security threats for media streaming data are on the high edge. So, it is necessary to develop a secured multicasting protocol. This paper focuses on the design and development of a secured session-based QoS guaranteed middleware framework MAFSS (Middleware Architectural Framework for Secured Services in Mobile Ad hoc Network), interoperating with the middleware policy manager.
