Research highlight : ONE STEP FORWARD: LINKING WIRELESS SELF-ORGANIZING NETWORK VALIDATION TECHNIQUES WITH FORMAL TESTING APPROACHES
ONE STEP FORWARD: LINKING WIRELESS SELF-ORGANIZING NETWORK VALIDATION TECHNIQUES WITH FORMAL TESTING APPROACHES
1 January 2011

Wireless self-organizing networks (WSONs) have attracted considerable attention from the network research community; however, the key for their success is the rigorous validation of the properties of the network protocols. Applications of risk or those demanding precision (like alert-based systems) require a rigorous
and reliable validation of deployed network protocols. While the main goal is to ensure the reliability of the protocols, validation techniques also allow the establishment of their correctness regarding the related
protocols’ requirements. Nevertheless, even if different communities have carried out intensive research activities on the validation domain, WSONs still raise new issues for and challenging constraints to these communities. We thus, advocate the use of complementary techniques coming from different research communities to efficiently address the validation of WSON protocols. The goal of this tutorial is to present a comprehensive review of the literature on protocol engineering techniques and to discuss difficulties imposed by the characteristics of WSONs on the protocol engineering community. Following the formal and nonformal classification of techniques, we provide a discussion about components and similarities of existing
protocol validation approaches. We also investigate how to take advantage of such similarities to obtain complementary techniques and outline new challenges.
