Highest security in the MANET

HiMoNN is not only characterised by high mobility and flexibility, special focus was also put on optimum security. In co-operation with the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) suitable measures for the protection of the transmitted information were identified and integrated into the HiMoNN system. This starts with access control mechanisms for the connection of user client devices, continues with the protection of the radio-based user access, up to the protection of the information exchanged between different HiMoNN communication nodes.

The design and the integration of suitable security mechanisms focused on addressing the following substantial security requirements:

  • Ensurance of confidentiality of data and control information,
  • Ensurance of integrity of the data and control information,
  • Verifiability of the authenticity of data and control information,
  • Avoidance of unnecessary control information,
  • Access control for the connection of client devices to the HiMoNN,
  • Access control for the HiMoNN user access.
