Abstract: Wireless ad hoc networks provide a useful communications infrastructure for the mobile battlefield. In this paper we apply and develop passive radio frequency signal strength monitoring and packet transmission time profiling techniques, to characterise and reconstruct an encrypted wireless network's topology. We show that by using signal strength measurements from three or more wireless probes and by assuming the use of carrier sense multiple access with collision avoidance, for physical layer control, we can produce a representation of a wireless network's logical topology and in some cases reconstruct the physical topology. Smoothed Kalman Altering is used to track the reconstructed topology over time, and in conjunction with a weighted least squares template fitting technique, enables the profiling of the individual network nodes and the characterisation of their transmissions. © 2007 Crown Copyright.
