Detecting Sleep Deprivation Attack Over MANET Using a Danger Theory - Based Algorithm
MANET is a collection of mobile, decentralized, and self organized nodes. Securing MANET is a problem which adds more challenges on the research. This is because MANET properties make it harder to be secured than the other types of static networks. This paper objective is to summarize different types of attacks over MANET, and concerns with studying sleep deprivation attack. Therefore, this paper utilizes one of the danger theory intrusion detection algorithms, namely, the Dendritic Cell Algorithm (DCA) to detect the sleep deprivation attack over MANET. In this paper, DCA is plugged in a proposed mobile dendritic cell algorithm called MDCA which represented through a proposed MDCA architecture.
