Defending against cache consistency attacks in wireless ad hoc networks
Caching techniques can be used to reduce bandwidth consumption and data access delay in wireless ad hoc networks. When cache is used, the issue of cache consistency must be addressed, and maintaining strong cache consistency is desired in some strategic scenarios (e.g., battlefields). In these situations, the invalidation-based approach is preferred due to its low overhead. However, this approach may suffer from some security attacks. For example, malicious nodes (also called intruders) may drop, insert or modify invalidation messages to mislead receivers to use stale data or unnecessarily invalidate data that are still valid. In this paper, we first propose to employ the Invalidation Report (IR) based cache invalidation strategy to prevent intruders from dropping or modifying invalidation messages. Although digital signatures can be used to protect IRs, this has significantly high overhead in terms of computational and bandwidth overhead. To address this problem, we further propose a...
