Abstract

The increasing importance of information and communication, which plays a big role in a number of different fields in the modern era, brings with it the need for security. At the same time, encryption, which is an indispensable part of security architecture, is computationally intensive and may require a significant amount of energy consumption. Thus, it is of great importance to provide a sufficient level of security while properly utilising the available resources. This research suggests a security framework based on the Reliability Function, along with the added ability to dynamically adjust the security level with respect to energy consumption, either according to the severity of the requested service or according to a specified energy threshold.
