A Comprehension on Wormhole Attack Prevention Technique Using Threads in MANET

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The open and dynamic operational environment of Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) makes it vulnerable to various network attacks. Thus reducing the vulnerability is becoming a top priority. Wireless networks are susceptible to many attacks, including an attack known as the wormhole attack, has become a challenging work. The wormhole attack is very powerful and preventing this attack has proven to be very difficult. This paper addresses the aforementioned gap by introducing a new co-operative, clock synchronized technique based on Reference Broadcast System (RBS).
