  • Key Agreement with Voting Receiver in Public Safety Mesh Networks

    With the requirements of mobility, flexibility, and rapid response, public safety Mesh networks are widely used for emergency services to improve the efficiency of public safety communication to prevent or respond to incidents that harm or endanger persons or property. This special field communication brings new security challenges. In this paper, we propose a key agreement scheme with voting receiver special for public safety Mesh networks based on station-to-station protocol using directed signature where only both participants can gain the shared secret key, however, any party else can not understand the key agreement process including signature's verification. We analyze the properties of security and efficiency of our key agreement scheme in comparison to station-to-station protocol and authenticated key agreement based on asymmetric encryption. The results of experiment show that our key agreement scheme can provide resistance to unknown key-share attacks and better efficiency in terms of computational cost.

  • Key recommendation for key agreement in public safety mesh networks

    With enhanced functionalities and capabilities, wireless mesh networks are used for emergency services to improve the efficiency of public safety communication to prevent or respond to incidents that harm or endanger persons or property. This special field communication brings new security challenges. In this paper, we propose a key agreement scheme special for public safety mesh networks based on station-to-station protocol and extend the scheme to the key agreement with voting receiver using directed signature which can be verified only by the signature receiver. Also we import the expectancy-value theory in cognitive psychology to the analysis of key authentication. The results of analysis show that our schemes can provide resistance to unknown key-share attacks by little computational cost in comparison to the station- to-station protocol.

  • Priority Access for public safety on shared commercial LTE networks

    In order to provide nationwide broadband access to public safety users especially during emergencies, it is an imperative that the public safety user has access to a shared commercial network This document provides a summary of a proposed LTE based architecture and presents the results for ensuring that the spectrum usage is maximized and public safety requirements are fully met. Simulation based results for various scenarios show the guaranteeing of the radio admission and traffic bearer assignments for the public safety users based on the LTE radio admission control mechanisms and allocation and retention priority schemes. A meaningful approach of a public user allocated space in the shared commercial network results in maximizing the frequency spectrum use as well as ensuring that the public safety priority requirements are met.

  • Outreach to Define a Public Safety Communications Model For Broadband Cellular Video

    Video applications and analytics are routinely projected as a stressing and significant service of the Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network. As part of a NIST PSCR funded effort, the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness and MIT Lincoln Laboratory have been developing a body worn camera dataset that will be made publically available, along with identifying and recommending a set of feasible potential video analytics that can be built using the dataset or others. The development of this dataset was informed by outreach and feedback from the public safety community. We overview the outreach process and proposed capabilities that could be developed with a video dataset tailored for public safety.

  • Standards analysis on Korean positioning system for public safety

    In public safety, the position information of the rescue requester is an important element to provide public safety services to the rescue requester in time. Usually mobile network operators acquire the position information of the rescue requester through their positioning system and provide it to the national public safety agency using their own interfaces. Since each mobile operator implements and operates their own proprietary platform, an interoperability of the system among mobile operators is not assured and it sometimes causes system errors. Thus the stable and interoperable positioning system is required for the public safety. In US and EU, the standard on the positioning system for public safety is being discussed and tested due to reasons described above. In Korea, the discussion to create standards on the positioning system for public safety was initiated in 2015 as well, and recently a standard work on system interfaces is finalized. In this paper, requirements, architecture and interfaces of the positioning system for public safety standardized in Korea are analysed. And also the solution to develop the positioning system to ensure a system interoperability among mobile operators is proposed.

  • Cluster based routing protocol for public safety networks

    Recently, Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETs) have attracted huge attention in the field of public safety networks to realize a number of functionalities such as early warning, aiding the rescue and relief operations. First responder,s ability to communicate information among themselves and the supervisor greatly influences the success of the rescue operation. Therefore, a fast, reliable and robust communication system is desired to support the public safety rescue operations. Typical, public safety rescue operation consists of rescue workers grouped in the form of teams that work together and an authority that oversees the entire rescue operation. Keeping in mind the working of public safety rescue operation in the form of teams, this paper proposes a cluster based routing protocol for the public safety network. The selection of cluster head is based upon the residual energy and number of connections of a node, whereas the next hop to base station is selected based upon residual energy, number of connections and number of hops to base station. The data is aggregated at the cluster head and then forwarded to the base station. The simulation results are very promising as the proposed scheme outperforms other routing protocols.

  • A Software-Defined Device-to-Device Communication Architecture for Public Safety Applications in 5G Networks

    The device-to-device (D2D) communication paradigm in 5G networks provides an effective infrastructure to enable different smart city applications such as public safety. In future smart cities, dense deployment of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) can be integrated with 5G networks using D2D communication. D2D communication enables direct communication between nearby user equipments (UEs) using cellular or ad hoc links, thereby improving the spectrum utilization, system throughput, and energy efficiency of the network. In this paper, we propose a hierarchal D2D communication architecture where a centralized software-defined network (SDN) controller communicates with the cloud head to reduce the number of requested long-term evolution (LTE) communication links, thereby improving energy consumption. The concept of local and central controller enables our architecture to work in case of infrastructure damage and hotspot traffic situation. The architecture helps to maintain the communication between disaster victims and first responders by installing multi-hop routing path with the support of the SDN controller. In addition, we highlight the robustness and potential of our architecture by presenting a public safety scenario, where a part of the network is offline due to extraordinary events such as disaster or terrorist attacks.
