v Preface Ad hoc and sensor networks continue to have a growing impact on communication. These cost-effective wireless networks provide location independent computing in environments ranging from military battlefields to in-home patient monitoring systems. However, having real-time connectivity to critical information over an open communication channel requires that the issue of security be addressed. The unconstrained nature of a wireless medium allows for interception, injection, and interference of communication. Moreover, in the absence of centralized infrastructure, nodes must rely on the cooperation of their neighbors to provide data for local processing and to route their processed data. Malfunctions or malicious behavior in ad hoc and sensor networks can cause erroneous results, false alarms, and unaccounted events, crippling the effectiveness of the network. Security solutions for ad hoc and sensor networks are necessary and must be particularly efficient to cope with the constrained resources of these wireless networks. Scope of Book Security in Ad hoc and Sensor Networks provides a comprehensive treatment of security concepts from conventional security services to frameworks for managing security. Security issues discussed include (but are not limited to) attacks, malicious node detection, access control, authentication, anomaly detection, privacy and anonymity, key management, location verification, security architectures and protocols, secrecy and integrity, and network resilience and survivability. This complete book provides an excellent reference for students, researchers, and industry practitioners related to these areas.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
