The current Internet model was created 40 years ago when the requirements of the hosts were different from today. Currently, new requirements have appeared to satisfy the needs of the new technologies. The current Internet has problems with these new requirements, such as security, multihoming and mobility. Host Identity Protocol (HIP) has emerged as a solution for the introduced problems. HIP supports secure communication, end-host mobility, as well as end-host multihoming. However, current Firewalls do not support the Host Identity Protocol, and it hampers the deployment of HIP. HIP Enabled Firewall has been created to support Host Identity Protocol. It provides security, and support of mobility and multihoming. It also offers general Firewall features as stateful and stateless filtering. In this thesis, we measure and analysis the performance of the HIP based Firewall. Several tests analyzing different features of the network and the HIP. We examine the throughput of the network, the Round Trip Time of the packets and the time for the HIP Base Exchange.
