Man-in-the-middle attacks are one of the most popular and fundamental attacks on distributed systems that have evolved with advances in distributed computing technologies and have assumed several shapes ranging from simple IP spoofing to complicated attacks on wireless communications, which have safety-critical applications such as remote wireless passport verification. This paper proposes a static analysis algorithm for the detection of man-in-the-middle attacks in mobile processes using a solution based on precise timing.
