—The advancement of mobile and wireless communication technologies in recent years introduced various adaptive protocols to adapt the need for secured communications. Security is a crucial success factor for any communication protocols, especially in mobile environment due to its ad hoc behavior. Formal verification plays an important role in development and application of safety critical systems. Formalized exhausted verification techniques to analyze the security and the safety properties of communications protocols increase and confirm the protocol confidence. SPIN is a powerful model checker that verifies the correctness of distributed communication models in a rigorous and automated fashion. This short paper proposes a SPIN based formal verification approach of a security adaptive protocol suite. The protocol suite includes a neighbor discovery mechanism and routing protocol. Both parts of the protocol suite are modeled into SPIN and exhaustively checked various temporal properties which ensure the applicability of the protocol suite in real-life applications.
