Abstract

During disasters, existing telecommunication infrastructures are often congested or even destroyed. In these situations, mobile devices can be interconnected using wireless ad hoc and disruption-tolerant networking to establish a backup emergency communication system for civilians and emergency services. However, such communication systems entail serious security risks, since adversaries may attempt to steal confidential data, fake notifications of emergency services, or perform denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. In this paper, we present SEDCOS, a secure device-to-device communication system for disaster scenarios. SEDCOS allows new users to join the network during disasters, mitigates flooding DoS attacks, and offers role revocation for detected adversaries to withdraw their permissions and exclude them from group communication. SEDCOS mitigates flooding DoS attacks and offers role revocation for detected adversaries to withdraw their permissions and exclude them from group communication. SEDCOS mitigates flooding DoS attacks and offers role revocation for detected adversaries to withdraw their permissions. We demonstrate the effectiveness of SEDCOS by large-scale network simulations.
