A Unified Approach for Forensic Analysis of DDOS Attack in Manet
Mobile Ad Hoc NETwork (MANET) facilitates distributed wireless communication without pre-existing centralised infrastructure. The network is mobile and setting of connection is ad-hoc. The design of MANET helps improving network scalability, as well as reducing the time to deploy a new network infrastructure. However, the benefits of MANET come with the cost in reduced security. A typical DDoS attack is the flooding attack in which attackers paralyze the target networks by flooding excessive volume of traffic to deplete key resources of the target. When an attack on the target system is successful enough to crash or disrupt, this event as the breach that triggers investigation.
