In wireless networks, as in many other areas, protocols have initially been developed to provide high performance, assuming that all nodes will conform to them. However, nodes can be malicious and intent on disrupting the network. This is especially important for wireless networks since they are formed over a shared medium, especially since ad hoc networks are often specifically designed to allow all nodes to join, and potentially dangerous due to the increasing trend to use wireless networks for safety critical applications.

Thus is it important to develop protocols with provable guarantees of performance, taking into account that nodes can indeed be malicious. Motivated by this we develop a clean slate approach to wireless networking. This approach is model-based, and yields a complete protocol suite that provides provable guarantees of performance optimality in the presence of malicious nodes.

This approach is in contrast to the traditional development pattern where protocols are patched as and when specific vulnerabilities are discovered, but no security guarantees are ever provided since the patched protocol may still be vulnerable to other attacks yet to be discovered.

P. R. Kumar obtained his B. Tech. degree in Electrical Engineering (Electronics) from I.I.T. Madras in 1973, and the M.S. and D.Sc. degrees in Systems Science and Mathematics from Washington University, St. Louis, in 1975 and 1977, respectively. From 1977-84 he was a faculty member in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. From 1985-2011 he was a faculty member in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Coordinated Science Laboratory at the University of Illinois. Currently he is at Texas A&M University, where he is a University Distinguished Professor and holds the College of Engineering Chair in Computer Engineering.

Kumar is a member of the National Academy of Engineering of the USA, and a Fellow of the World Academy of Sciences. He was awarded an honorary doctorate by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (Eidgenossische Technische Hochschule) in Zurich. He received the Outstanding Contribution Award of ACM SIGMOBILE, the IEEE Field Award for Control Systems, the Donald P. Eckman Award of the American Automatic Control Council, and the Fred W. Ellersick Prize of the IEEE Communications Society. He is an ACM Fellow and a Fellow of IEEE. He was a Guest Chair Professor and Leader of the Guest Chair Professor Group on Wireless Communication and Networking at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. He is an Honorary Professor at IIT Hyderabad. He is a D. J. Gandhi Distinguished Visiting Professor at IIT Bombay. He was awarded the Distinguished Alumnus Award from IIT Madras, the Alumni Achievement Award from Washington University in St. Louis, and the Daniel C. Drucker Eminent Faculty Award from the College of Engineering at the University of Illinois.
