Packet Misrouting Attacks in Multi Radio Wireless Networks: Detection and Countermeasure
Stealthy packet dropping is a suite for attack such as misrouting and that can be easily launched against multi-radio wireless networks. Stealthy packet dropping disrupts the packet from reaching the destination through malicious behavior at an intermediate node. However, the malicious node gives the impression to its neighbors that it performs the legitimate forwarding action. Moreover, a legitimate node comes under suspicion. A popular method for detecting attacks in wireless networks is behavior-based detection performed by normal network nodes through overhearing the communication in their neighborhood.
