Developing and evaluating secure MANET (Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks) in real systems is a complex process that involves careful design of attack test cases and security countermeasures, as well as meaningful performance measurements to evaluate both the impact of attacks and the performance of security solutions. It is desirable to have a development and testing environment that can automate this process. In this paper, the authors propose a software framework for such an environment and describe a system implementation in the secure MANET routing domain. This environment includes the following three major features.
