Resilient Networking

In the presence of the explosive growth and societal dependence on wireless networking technologies, the fundamental vulnerabilities of wireless networks remain. Users of wireless networks bear the risk of denial-of-service from a wealth of causes, both man-made and disaster-borne. Research in this area accordingly includes security and disaster management aspects.

Survivable Social Network (SSN) The SSN project is developing a system that can be deployed in and by neighborhoods to provide flexible and powerful social networking tools, accessible via smartphones, without dependence on public telecommunications or Internet infrastructures. SSN offers the promise of a familiar-feeling, easily used, training-less system for disseminating information in the midst of a disaster to and between community members, augmenting existing tools and systems that will be available to relief agencies.
