We propose a reliable and ubiquitous group key distribution scheme that is suitable for ad hoc networks. The scheme has self-initialisation and self-securing features. The former feature allows a cooperation of an arbitrary number of nodes to initialise the system, and it also allows node admission to be performed in a decentralised fashion. The latter feature allows a group member to determine the group key remotely while maintaining the system security.

We also consider a decentralised solution of establishing secure point-to-point communication. The solution allows a new node to establish a secure channel with every existing node if it has pre-existing secure channels with a threshold number of the existing nodes.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
