Sec.AODV for MANETs Using MD5 With Cryptography
Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) characteristics present major vulnerabilities in security. The threats which thought-out in MANETs are due to maliciousness that intentionally disrupts the network by using variety of attacks and due to insecure routing protocols (e.g. AODV), which were developed without considering security in mind. Due to lack of the infrastructure, open peer-to-peer architecture, shared wireless medium, limited resource constraints and highly dynamic topology, MANETs (Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks) are frequently established in insecure environments, which make them more vulnerable to attacks. These attacks are initiated by sharing malicious nodes against different services of network.
