A Multi-Agent Security Approach for Drones using Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
Mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) are used for a variety of networked applications; however, they are critical to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)or drones for functions such as providing operators with crucial tracking of other aircraft, managing and navigating routes, and dealing with adverse weather conditions. However, MANET are difficult to secure because they have limited capabilities with regard to conventional countermeasures such as firewalls. In this manuscript, we provide a specification and use case for an adaptable security approach using structuration and danger theory. Keywords - MANET, Cyber Security, UAVs, Drones, Structuration, Danger Theory.
