We present a validation model for the dynamic source routing (DSR) protocol. This model includes a formal specification of the protocol and a set of scenarios. The scenarios test the conformance of a given implementation to some targeted system functionalities. The DSR protocol has been specified following the IETF draft [D.B. Johnson, et al., (2003)]. The formal specification has been performed using the SDL language and the scenarios have been generated from the specification using a method and a tool developed at INT [A. Cavalli, et al., (1999)]. The test generation method is based on a set of test purposes that express specific system properties and is completely automated. We also present the experimentation results of the application of our tool to the DSR protocol.
