Simulation and Evaluation of CTP and Secure-CTP Protocols
The paper discusses characteristics and qualities of two routing protocols – Collection Tree Protocol and its secure modiﬁcation. The original protocol, as well as other protocols for wireless sensors, solves only problems of ra- dio communication and limited resources. Our design of the secure protocol tries to solve also the essential security ob- jectives. For the evaluation of properties of our protocol in large networks, a TOSSIM simulator was used. Our effort was to show the inﬂuence of the modiﬁcation of the routing protocol to its behavior and quality of routing trees. We have proved that adding security into protocol design does not necessarily mean higher demands for data transfer, power consumption or worse protocol efﬁciency. In the paper, we manifest that security in the protocol may be achieved with low cost and may offer similar performance as the original protocol.
