A Behavioral Study of Wormhole Attack in Routing for MANET

Wireless mobile ad-hoc networks are those networks which has no physical links between the nodes. There is no fixed topology in this network due to the random mobility of nodes, interference, multipath propagation and path loss. Many Routing protocols have been proposed and developed for accomplishing this task. This paper is to analyze three ad-hoc routing protocols AODV, DYMO and FISHEYE against wormhole attack in wireless network. This paper concentrates evaluating the performance of routing protocols when wormhole attacks involve in wireless network. The performance analysis for above protocol is based on variation in speed of nodes in a network with 50 nodes. All simulation is carried out with QualNet 5.0 simulator.
