Coordination between distributed ad hoc units requires ambient intelligence to form a guidance system. The network formed by this coordination comprises two variedly operating ad hoc units. One such coordinating network is formed between the unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and the ground nodes. Such network formations require highly sensitive and fault-tolerant data transfer over the secure channels. A secure channel is required that can ensure the secure connectivity between nodes of the two networks. This secure channel can be realized using a teredo tunneling approach. Using this approach, a service-oriented security framework is developed. The proposed framework focuses over security in terms of cognitive, corridor, and localization of the multi-UAV guided system based on the estimation of teredo units using Gauss–Markov-based α − β − γ filter. The effectiveness of the proposed approach is demonstrated, with significant improvements in terms of system fairness, data delivery ratio, network throughput, and average delays in comparison with the baseline and Hubenko architecture. The proposed model provides 16.25% better fairness, 12% better data rate, 15.7% better throughput, and 10.3% lesser delays than the baseline and 12.9% better fairness, 10% better data rate, 8% better throughput, and 7.9% lesser delays than the Hubenko architecture.
