Abstract: The security of data is a very important aspect of every institution. One of the methods of boosting data security is by use of routing stack transformation. This approach successfully hides router inter-networking operating system from potential hackers by giving wrong or inaccurate results about the target operating system (including its manufacturer, model and version). This process normally involves changing the system kernel and modifying the transmission control protocol/Internet protocol (TCP/IP) parameters. In this paper, we investigated the effects of the above changes in data transmission rates (bit rates). This was done by use of experimentations before and after these alterations. A number of packets were sent from source and the time they take to reach the target is measured. This information was then used to determine the access rates in kilobits per second across a given communication link. We found that the network speeds were slightly reduced due to the TCP/IP and kernel changes. This could be attributed to the fact that network devices now took a long time trying to learn the format of the new packets, hence the subsequent delays. Due to this, a number of ways of boosting network speed are suggested. The simulated results tend to agree with the real trend observed in that in both scenarios, network access rates were reduced after routing stack transformation.
