Tunable Security Support for Wireless Applications
2005 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
A tunable and differential treatment of security is needed to achieve the best possible balance between security and performance for wireless applications. In this paper, we present a tunable encryption service that is based on a selective encryption paradigm in which applications can request a desired encryption level. Encryption levels are selected at the inception of a session, but can be changed at any time during its lifetime. In the paper, a prototype implemented on top of the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) is described and an initial performance evaluation is presented. The results demonstrate that the proposed service offers a high degree of security adaptiveness at a low cost
