Existing wireless networks aim to provide communication services between vehicles by enabling the vehicular networks to support wide range applications. This book discusses the new challenges involved in securing routing in wireless sensor networks with different new hybrid topologies.

An analysis of the security of real time data diffusion, a protocol used for routing in wireless sensor networks, is provided along with the various possible attacks on this routing protocol and the possible countermeasures to prevent these attacks. Different applications are introduced, and different new topologies are developed for these purposes.

Topics discussed include Audio Video Bridging (AVB) switched Ethernet, a study that uses the representation of a network of wireless sensors by a grayscale image to construct routing protocols minimizing the energy consumption and data sharing in Vehicular Ad-Hoc networks.

New topologies are proposed first based on the graphiton models, then the Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) based on the IEEE 802.15.4 standard (ZigBee sensors) and finally the Pancake graphs as an alternative to the Hypercube for interconnecting processors in parallel computer networks.
