Security and QoS Integration Model for MANETs

keywords: QoS, security, cross layer design, security service vector, MANET
The new model used to integrating security and Quality of Service (QoS) as one parameter in mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) is introduced and studied in this article. Security and QoS represent a highly important field of research in MANET and they are still being considered separately with no mechanisms used to establish cooperation between them. This new model provides alternative to cooperation between QoS and security via cross layer design (CLD) and modified security service vector. Performance analysis of the new designed model is introduced too. It is also considered herein how processing of the new integrating model affects the performance of the MANET networks.
