Abstract
The Navy seeks to increase the authentication of mobile communicating nodes such as war fighting ships and aircraft. BCI proposes a novel Lease Based Mobile Authentication scheme that requires two authentication steps before permitting new entities to join a network, or existing entities to renew their membership. The Local Authentication step involves challenges by nodes co-located with the entering node to verify its identity and position. This is followed by Network Authentication that uses the approximate location information of the entering node as one factor in a decision to accept or reject the request to join the network. Following Network Authentication, a temporary lease is granted to the node to allow it to communicate. The overall result is highly secure authentication, without a dependence on GPS positioning information, or any centralized decision-making authority. The overall goal of this project is to demonstrate the performance and potential of the proposed Lease Based Mobile Authentication technology.
