Assurance networks are one of the essential technologies of New-generation Networks. Assurance is defined as the capability of guaranteeing functional and non-functional system properties such as dependability, security, timeliness and adaptability to heterogeneous and changing requirements. Assurance is essential for sustainable networks and this research focused specifically on providing assurance for WSNs. Node capture attacks are one prospective kind of attack on WSNs. To reduce negative effect of node capture attacks, we have previously proposed secure decentralized data transfer. In this proposed method, it was assumed that multiple paths were in place. In this paper as well, we again propose using the multipath routing method. To make multiple paths fit our previously proposed method, we have modified ATR (Augmented Tree Based Routing). We have conducted simulation experiments using our proposed method in a network simulator. The results show that our previously proposed method is effective in both cases in which the network size is small or large. In addition, we conducted other simulation experiments to measure several aspects of the assurance of our method. We measured in terms of varying parameters such as node densities, distance between the source and the destination nodes, and so on. Additionally, our method is more assured than the single path-based method.
Assurance networks are designed to realize trustable Internet-Of-Things including terminal devices/infrastructure service applications for new generation networks. To construct assurance networks, it is necessary to evaluate them quantitatively. In this paper, we provide one of case studies to evaluate them quantitatively. In mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), the network environments change over time due to the movement of nodes, the battery level of nodes, and so on. Assurance networks must maintain high performance even when such diverse changes of the network environments occur in the widely applicable domain. And if their performance degrades, they must early recover from the changes. So far, we have proposed a routing method for MANETs, called Route-Split Routing (RSR). RSR can suppress escalation of control packets in large scale MANETs. However, with RSR, drawbacks occur when some nodes exhaust their batteries. In this paper, we propose a sustainable route-split routing scheme to improve assurance by adapting node faults due to battery exhaustion for MANETs. To evaluate the assurance of the proposed method, we have implemented it with a simulator and have conducted simulation experiments. The results indicate that the proposed method can maintain high throughput when some nodes experience
Assurance network technologies are necessary to produce trustworthy terminals or infrastructure service applications for potentially large-scale networks such as in the Internet-of-Things. In large-scale network systems, not only the size of the network will become larger but also the density will vary in the network. Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) could be the future of networks. In the future, the size of networks will become larger. In real situations, nodes are not uniformly distributed in networks. The difference in node density will be greater in large-scale networks. When flooding is conducted in a dense area, network congestion occurs and nodes cannot communicate with each other. As proposed in paper , Route-Split Routing (RSR) can communicate with a higher throughput than theAd hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) method in large MANETs. Along with the assurance network design principle, RSR splits its route by configuring Sub-route Management Nodes (SMNs) using a constant value called the SMN interval. In large MANETs, nodes are not distributed evenly. Thus, routing protocols for large MANETs must take into consideration that its route will pass through sparse areas and dense areas. In this paper, we propose a new routing method based on RSR for large
