Abstract

The implementation of security protocols within Wireless Body Sensor Network (WBSN) creates chances for more observations in the sake of performance evaluation. The robustness of such protocols can be verified by formalizing its components using different techniques. In addition, simulating the security protocol can provide an insight into several design parameters, such as response to inputs, and help adjusting these design parameters. In this paper, we provide a framework for simulating security protocols within WBSN in order to validate that such protocol meets essential security requirements. Afterwards, we apply it on a security protocol that relies on ElectroCardioGram signal. During the work on this paper, it has been proven that the simulation framework provides the user with the potential to analyze the security aspects of Wireless Body Sensor network applications, such as ElectroCardioGram bio-sensor.
