- Background noise
- Physical Interference
- Co-existing networks
- Jammer

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- A physical jammerlistens to the open medium and broadcasts in the same frequency band as network
- can lead to significant disruption of communication at low cost for the jammer

- MAC protocol

- Fairness

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- single frequency: e.g., sensor nodes
- at each time step, a node may decide to transmit a packet (nodes continuously contend to send packets)
- a node may transmit or sense the channel at any time step (half-duplex)
- when sensing the channel a node v may
- sense an idle channel
- receive a packet
- sense a busy channel (due to interference or adversarial jamming)

- nreliable honest nodes and ajammer (adversary); all nodes within transmission range of each other and of the jammer

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- (T,λ)-bounded adversary, 0 < λ < 1: in any time window of size w ≥ T, the adversary can jam ≤ λw time steps

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- a protocol is called constant-competitive against a(T,λ)-bounded adversary if the nodes manage to perform successful transmissions in at least a constant fraction of the steps (w.h.p. or on expectation), for any sufficiently large number of steps

successful transmissions

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- symmetric local-control MAC protocol that is constant-competitive against any (T,1-ε)-bounded adaptive adversary after Ω (T / ε) steps w.h.p., for any constant 0<ε<1and anyT.
- energy efficient:
- converges to bounded amount of energy consumption due to message transmissions by nodes under continuous adversarial jamming (ε=0)

- fast recovery from any state

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

Pros:

- no prior knowledge of global parameters
- nodes do not know ε

- no IDs needed
Cons:

- nodes know rough estimate γ=O(1/(log T + loglog n))
- allow for superpolynomial change in n and polynomial change in T over time

- fair channel use is not guaranteed
- we will see how to fix that later

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- spread spectrum & frequency hopping:
- Many references in the literature (specially more applied work)…
- rely on broad spectrum (large number of available frequencies). However, sensor nodes or common wireless devices based on 802.11 have narrow spreading factors
- Our approach is orthogonal to broad spectrum techniques, and can be used in conjunction with those.

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- random backoff:
- adaptive adversary too powerful for MAC protocols based on random backoff\tournaments (including the 802.11 standard [Bayrataroglu, King, Liu, Noubir, Rajaraman, Thapa, INFOCOM’08])

- [Gilbert, Guerraoui, Newport, OPODIS’06]: cannot handle adaptive adversaries with high jamming rate
- more general scenario (adversary can also introduce malicious messages)
- nodes know n
- not energy efficient

- Others (channel surfing, coding strategy,etc.): also cannot handle adaptive adversary

- Adaptive adversary

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- each node v sends a message at current time step with probability pv≤pmax, for constant 0 < pmax<< 1.p = ∑ pv(aggregateprobability) qidle=probability the channel is idleqsucc=probability that only one node is transmitting (successful transmission)
- Claim.qidle. p ≤qsucc≤(qidle. p)/ (1-pmax)
if (number of times the channel is idle)=(number of successful transmissions)p = θ(1)qsucc= θ(1) ! (what we want!)

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- a node v adapts pv based only on steps when an idle channel or a successful message transmission are observed, ignoring all other steps (including all the blocked steps when the adversary transmits!)

Each time step:

- Node vsends a message with probability pv . If v does not send a message then
- if the wireless channel is idle then pv = (1+ γ) pv
- if vreceived a message thenpv = pv /(1+ γ)
(Recall thatγ = O(1/(log T + loglog n)).)

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- Basic problem:Aggregate probability p could be too large.
- all time steps blocked due to message collisions w.h.p.

- Basic problem:Cumulative probability p could be too large.
- all time steps blocked due to message collisions w.h.p.

- Idea: If more than T consecutive time stepswithout successful transmissions (or idle time steps), then reduce probabilities, which results in fast recovery of p.
- Problem: Nodes do not know T. How to learn a good time window threshold?
- It turns out that additive-increase additive-decrease is the right strategy!

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- each node vmaintains
- probability valuepv,
- time window thresholdTv, and
- countercv

- Initially, Tv = cv = 1andpv = pmax (< 1/24).
- synchronized time steps (for ease of explanation)
- Intuition:wait for an entire time window (according to current estimate Tv) until you can increase Tv

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

In each step:

- node v sends a message with probability pv . If v decides not to send a message then
- if v senses an idle channel, then pv= min{(1+γ)pv , pmax}
- if vsuccessfully receives a message, then pv= pv /(1+ γ)and Tv= max{Tv - 1, 1}

- cv= cv + 1. If cv> Tvthen
- cv= 1
- ifvdidnot receive a messagesuccessfullyin thelast Tv steps thenpv= pv /(1+ γ)andTv= Tv +1

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- Let N = max {T,n}
- Theorem. Our MAC protocol is constant-competitive under any (T,1-ε)-bounded adversary if the protocol is executed for Ω(log N . max{T,log3N/(εγ2)}/ε) steps w.h.p., for any constant 0<ε<1and anyT.

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- Show competitiveness for time frames of F = θ((log N . max{T,log3N/(εγ2)}/ε) many steps If we can show constant competitiveness for any such time frame of size F, the theorem follows
- Use induction over the number of sufficiently large time frames seen so far. We subdivide each frame:

I’

I

f =θ(max{T,log3N/(εγ2)})

F = (log N / ε) . f

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- p > 1/(f2(1+γ)2√f) and Tv< √F, in each subframe I’ w.h.p.
- p<12 and p>1/12 within subframe I’ with moderate probability (so that adaptive adversarial jamming not successful)
- Constant throughput in I’ with moderate probability
- Over a logarithmic number of subframes, constant throughput in frame I of size F w.h.p.

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

Moreover, under a more powerful adversary that can perform continuous jamming (afterΩ(T)steps):

Lemma. The total energy consumption (sending out messages) during an entire continuous jamming attack is O(√T), independent of the length of the attack.

- Adaptive adversary
- Single-hop scenario
- Simple (yet powerful) idea
- MAC protocol

- Fairness

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- [R.,Scheideler, Schmid, Zhang, ICDCS’11]
- Fully adaptive adversary that in addition can quickly observe the channel at the current time step, before deciding to jam
- i.e., the adversary has some knowledge about the random choices at current time step
- Distinguishes between idle and non-idle time steps, but cannot distinguish between successful transmissions and collisions (e.g., if packets are encrypted)

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- Need to “synchronize” transmission probabilities pv, as well as counters cv and Tv
- Piggyback pv, cv, Tvto a message sent by v
- Better understanding on how aggregate probability changes every time step
- Achieve fairness for free (basically all nodes have the same transmission probability)!

- Once nodes are synchronized (plus some other smaller changes), one can show that the basic protocol is also robust against reactive adversaries

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

Theorem.The AntiJam protocol achieves:

- fairness: the channel access probabilities among nodes do not differ by more than a factor of (1+γ) after the first message was sent successfully.
- eθ(1/ ε )-competitiveness w.h.p., under any (T,1-ε)-bounded reactive adversary if the protocol is executed forΩ(T/ε) steps w.h.p., for any constant 0<ε<1and anyT(constant in throughput now depends on ε)

- Fact:
- Right after u sends a message successfully along with the tuple (pu ,cu ,Tu), (pv, cv, Tv)= (pu / (1+ γ), cu,Tu) for all receiving nodes v, while the sending node values stay the same. In particular, for any time step tafter a successful transmission by node u, (cv, Tv) = (cw, Tw) for all nodes v and w V
- This implies that after a successful transmission, the access probabilities of any two nodes in the network will never differ by more than a factor in the future.

- A message sent by nodeu is received at node v iff- N: Gaussian variable for background noise- S: set of transmitting nodes- : constant that depends on transmission scheme- d(x,y):Euclidean distance between x and y

- (B,T)-bounded adaptive adversary: has an overall noise budget of BT that it can use to increase the noise level at node v and that it can distribute among the time steps as it likes.
- At any point in time, the adversary makes independent decisions for each node on whether to jam it (provided it does not exceed its noise budget over a window of size T).
- many noise phenomena can be covered under this model

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- Our goal: select a leader among the nodes
- Challenges: we may start in any state; there is adaptive adversary

leader

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- Goal: design a self-stabilizing protocol that elects a single node as the leader, irrespective of the jamming activity
- Challenges:
- a leader node should let the others (followers or other leaders) know that he is still around
- the followers should be able to notice when there is no leader in the network

- Adversary: used to model external world
- More bening:
- Control packet injection rates
- Control mobility

- Intentionally disruptive:
- jammers

- More disruptive: malicious adversaries
- Undermine security
- Control Byzantine nodes (introduce fake messages)

- Etc.

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- Jamming-resistant protocols with power control:
- Increasing power increases chance that signal will overcome jamming activity, however…
- Increasing power also generates more interference…
- Also adapt noise threshold level?

- How about reactive jammers in multihop environments, under SINR?
- Can the protocols be modified so that no rough bound on n and T are required?
- stochastic/oblivious jammers: Simpler to handle? E.g., a constant gamma seems to work fine here.

- Other applications of the MAC protocol (e.g., broadcast)?

SIROCCO'13, Andrea Richa

- What would be your application of an adversary in wireless communication?
