Resilient and Secure Local Peer-to-Peer and Disaster Communication

Bachelor Thesis, Master Thesis

Opportunistic- and disruption-tolerant networks enable resilient communication in local communities by epidemically distributing messages. This is beneficial to resist censorship or work in scenarios where global network communication might not be possible or disrupted, e.g., during a disaster or in rural areas. Due to the increased resource usage on all devices by epidemic data dissemination, finding optimal strategies to reduce bandwidth, storage space or increase resilience against local adversarial networking nodes is very important.
