Secure Protocol for Four D2D Scenarios


Hoda Nematy, Malek-Ashtar University of Technology, Iran


In traditional cellular infrastructure, cellular devices communicate with each other directly even when they are close together. This strategy causes massive traffic to the cellular network therefore D2D communication has introduced to overcome this issue, bring more bandwidth and also higher rates to the cellular network. One of the major challenges for D2D Communication is to have one single secure protocol that can adapt in four D2D scenarios defined in references. These scenarios are Direct D2D and relaying D2D communication with and without cellular infrastructure. In this paper, we propose a Secure D2D protocol based on ARIADNE with TESLA. Also we use LTE-A AKA protocol for authentication and key agreement procedure between Source and Destination. Next, we adapt this scenario to be applicable in without cellular infrastructure ones. This protocol could be used in direct D2D also. Based on the results, our proposed protocol has a few computation overhead compare to recent works and have less communication overhead than SODE with preserve many security properties such as Authentication, Authorization, Confidentiality, Integrity, Secure Key Agreement, Secure Routing Transmission…. We check Authentication, Confidentiality, Reachability and Secure Key Agreement of the proposed protocol with ProVerif verification tools.
