Xiaolong Yin, "Leistungsbewertung des Einflusses von Sicherheitsmechanismen in 802.15.4 basierten Sensornetzen," Master's Thesis, Department of Computer Science, Friedrich–Alexander University of Erlangen–Nuremberg (FAU), March 2009. (Advisors: Feng Chen and Falko Dressler)


In recent years, Low-Rate Wireless Personal Area Networks (in short LR-WPAN) are in widespread use. The main advantages of an LR-WPAN are ease of installation, reliable data transfer, extremely low cost, and a reasonable battery life. But at the same time, LR-WPAN has also disadvantages in terms of security. In this thesis a model for IEEE 802.15.4 security mechanism is implemented and is integrated into an existing OMNeT++ simulation model of IEEE 802.15.4. Thereafter, a number of different simulations with different security level are performed. In the end the result will be analyzed and the exact impact of the security mechanisms on the performance of the whole network are identified and evaluated, e.g. the energy consumption, the end-to-end delay, the end-to-end throughput and the average packet loss rate.
