Samoyed project focuses on solving mobility management and security problems in hierarchical ad hoc networks, especially ad hoc access networks. This means that nodes, connecting without a pre-existing infrastructure in a peer-to-peer fashion, form a communicating network that offers wireless mobile devices access to a fixed network, for example the Internet.
We study and develop designs and tools for mobility management and security in such networks. The goal is to produce both new analytical information on the performance and security issues and more tangible results, such as specifications, architecture models and proof-of-concept implementations.
The project started in September 2003 and is funded by TEKES, Ericsson and the Finnish Defence Forces. Its planned duration is three years. The project supervisor is professor Pekka Orponen.
