MADSN: Mobile Agent Based Detection of Selfish Node in MANET

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Mobile Adhoc NETwork (MANET) is highly vulnerable to attacks due to the open medium dynamically changing network topology, co-operative algorithm, lack of centralized monitoring and management point. The fact that security is a critical problem when implementing Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) is widely acknowledged. One of the different kinds of misbehavior a node may exhibit is selfishness. Routing protocol plays a crucial role for effective communication between mobile nodes and operates on the basic assumption that nodes are fully cooperative. Because of open structure and limited battery-based energy some nodes (i.e., selfish or malicious) may not cooperate correctly.
