Mobile ad hoc networks suffer for lack of security because of its mobility of the nodes and the network is vulnerable to most of the intrusion behaviour. In this paper, the authors analyze one of the most vulnerable behaviours known as Sinkhole behaviour. They designed architecture to effectively analyze this attack on MANET. They consider various performance metrics and attributes to understand the behaviour of this attack. From the results they can understand that this attack causes damage to the communication of MANET's. They have evaluated their results using ns-2.
