Abstract :
A paradigm shift is taking place from wired networks to wireless/infrastructure less Ad-Hoc networks, such as Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks (MANET) and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). Their computational power is low and bandwidth is limited. Because of their unique characteristics data security becomes a major issue in these resource constrained networks. Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) may provide a solution for the security of Ad-Hoc networks since they need significantly smaller parameters in comparison to cryptosystem such as RSA, DSA etc., therefore involving lightweight computations. In this paper we propose a new cryptosystem based on ECC, which uses non -singular matrix multiplication for point mapping along with Elliptic curve analog of Massey-Omura method for encryption and decryption. Our method being simple, fast and efficient is suitable for resource constrained networks such as MANET and WSN.
