Attack Injection to Support the Evaluation of Ad Hoc Networks
The increasing emergence of mobile computing devices seamlessly providing wireless communication capabilities opens a wide range of new application domains for ad hoc networks. However, the sensitivity of ad hoc routing protocols to malicious faults (attacks) limits in practice their confident use in commercial products. This requires not only practical means to enforce the security of these protocols, but also approaches to evaluate their behavior in the presence of attacks. The authors' previous contribution to the evaluation of ad hoc networks has been focused on the definition of an approach for injecting grey hole attacks in real (non-simulated) ad hoc networks.
