A routing-based solution to simulating an access point

Military environments require flexible network configurations that must adapt under dynamic and mobile operating conditions. Wireless data networks offer some solutions. A wireless network typically requires an access point to bridge network traffic between wireless and wired media. These devices though are often too inflexible for use in such dynamic conditions. One major problem is that they are dedicated to a single type of wired network, usually Ethernet, which prevents them from being used to bridge traffic to other kinds of networks, for example, ATM or even cellular. This thesis shows how any device running a recent Linux kernel can be configured to route packets in way that simulates an access point. The advantages of such a configuration are described and its potential for military use is discussed.
