Comparison of inter-area rekeying algorithms for secure wireless group communications
Many emerging mobile wireless applications depend upon secure group communications, in which data is encrypted and the group's data encryption key is changed whenever a member joins or leaves the group's session. Hierarchical approaches have recently been proposed to manage the distribution of the data encryption key in a scalable manner for fixed (non-mobile) networks. In this paper, we characterize the impact of mobility on secure rekeying of group communication in a hierarchical key-distribution framework. We propose several rekeying algorithms that preserve confidentiality as members move within the hierarchy. The algorithms differ in the locality of communication, the amount of messages needed to rekey the data key/key encryption key, the key encryption key rekey rate, and the number of key encryption keys held by group members. We develop Markov models to quantify the performance of the proposed algorithms. Our results shows that the FEDRP and SR inter area rekeying al...
