Simulation Based Performance Comparison of AODV, DSR, FSR Routing Protocol with Wormhole Attack
An ad hoc network is a cluster of nodes where individual nodes help in forwarding the packets even beyond the wireless transmission range. This network does not rely on routers in wired network or access points in wireless network, hence it's named ad hoc. In this paper, the authors have introduced the worm hole attack to one network and analyzed the impact of this attack on various protocols such as AODV,DSR and Fisheye. This is a severe and challenging attack and can attack any network which is considered to be more secure. Here, they have collated the performance of the above protocols in terms of throughput, packet delivery, jitter and end to end delay in mobile and immobile ad hoc networks when attacked by wormhole.
