Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) has been recently proposed, to optimize the locality of services. Within SOA, the main goal is to provide optimal service experience, rather than connection between two end points. Traditional SOA however, relies on XML message exchange, which makes it not suitable for nodes with no web processing capabilities. This paper introduces a secure service distribution system for VErsatile Service-Oriented Wireless Mesh Networks (VESO-Mesh), named VESO-DRS. VESO-DRS uses a hash table approach to provide confidentiality and preservation of integrity of resources in the mesh network. VESO-DRS also implements secure indexing for preserving confidentiality resources, and data may be searched and recovered via a novel resource ranking scheme. Results show that VESO-DRS can prevent unauthorized modifications to the resources, preserving their integrity; such resources are distributed across the mesh, yielding higher storage to all nodes.
