Scheme for Assigning Security Automatically for Real-Time Wireless Nodes via ARSA

  • Conference paper
Quality, Reliability, Security and Robustness in Heterogeneous Networks (QShine 2013)


Security and ease of use are two fundamental requirements of wireless network users. But they conflict with each other. The strongly secure network will put a lot of load on the server for security related work which may hamper the packet delivery ratio. But strong security is indispensable for maintaining the confidentiality of information in current real-time wireless communication networks. This research work combines both, the concepts of network security and the packet scheduling issues of the wireless data packets. Most of the users using wireless network are unaware about what level of security is needed for them. We present a new Automated Security-Aware Packet Scheduling Strategy or ASPS for real-time wireless network. This ASPS algorithm assigns the desirable level of security automatically to the respective data packets with guarantee of deadlines for the packets. Our simulation result proves that our proposal is performing better than existing algorithms in terms of the quality of security, guarantee ratio and reducing the load on the network switch.
