Title

Improving the Security of MANETs Oriented Military Intelligence using Biometrics Authentication Technologies

Description

In many parts of the world, the military has been very busy in recent times engaging in terror and other related wars. This requires that men and materials have to be located in different parts of their strategic geographic centres. And in order to ensure a fast communication with these bases, the military often deploys Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETs). MANETs carry such intelligence information as: deployment information, readiness information, and order of battle plans to their various bases. The nature of these information is such that any compromise on them could be disastrous to the courses of action of the bases. This paper identifies user authentication as a key issue in strengthening security concerns in MANETs. The paper further adopts biometrics technologies as the trending options for the purpose of obtaining a truer reflection of the identities of the users of ad-hoc networks. This paper therefore, reviews various biometrics technology implementation strategies available, and recommends the adoption of one, or a combination of them by military bases. The benefits provided by this technology are also presented.
