Stakhanova, Natalia, Basu, Samik, Zhang, Wensheng, Wang, Xia and Wong, Johnny (2007) Specification Synthesis for Monitoring and Analysis of MANET Protocols. Technical Report 07-02, Department of Computer Science, Iowa State University.
This paper introduces an approach to automatic synthesis of the specification models of rout-
ing protocol behavior from the observed flow of the network traffic. In particular, our technique
generalizes the monitored sequences of routing messages constructing a high-level abstract view
of the protocol. The basis of our method is similar to Inductive Logic Programming technique
that derives a sound hypothesis from the individual examples. We conduct preliminary experi-
ments on the example of AODV and DSR ad-hoc routing protocols and discuss the effectiveness
of the generated specification models in detecting protocol misuses.
