Open Challenges in the Resilience Evaluation of Ad Hoc Networks
Wireless ad hoc networks are spontaneous, self-healing and self-managing systems strongly raising in the last decade. However, their deployment in privacy- or life-critical scenarios still requires a deeper analysis to determine their robustness to faults/attacks and their ability to recover from situations degrading performance and dependability. Unfortunately, several challenges limit the development of practical assessment approaches for ad hoc networks. This paper focuses on identifying these challenges to provide potential evaluators with a guide of the sensitive points that require an especial attention to improve the credibility of results when addressing the resilience evaluation of ad hoc networks.
