The impact of a jamming attack on wireless communication depends on a number of physical characteristics and network protocol parameters. In particular, it depends on the relative geometries of the adversarial network of jammers and the network under attack. Hence, changes in network geometry achieved through node and jammer mobility can have significant influence on the impact of a jamming attack. In this paper, the authors investigate the use of mobility as a tool to allow both the adversarial network and the network under attack to reconfigure their geometry in an attempt to improve attack impact and protocol performance, respectively.
