Tunable Security Services for Wireless Networks
2008 (English)In: Adaptation and Cross Layer Design in Wireless Networks / [ed] Mohamed Ibnkahla, Boca Raton, FL, USA: CRC , 2008Chapter in book (Refereed)
This chapter introduces the concept of tunable security services for wireless networks. The aim of the chapter is to describe how security can be traded against performance. A survey and analysis of existing tunable services, which have been explicitly designed to offer various security levels during system operation, is provided. In total eight different services are analyzed in detail. The selection of services is made to cover a broad spectrum of services and to illustrate services at different communication layers. Two services from each of the following four layers are described and analyzed: application layer, transport layer, network layer, and, data link layer. Additional tunable security services are also briefly introduced. The analysis illustrates that tunability can be used in many different contexts and achieved through various mechanisms. From the analysis it is also evident that more suitable security and performance metrics are needed
