Sybil Attack on Lowest ID Clustering Algorithm in the Mobile Ad Hoc Network

Free registration required

Executive Summary

It is quite a challenging task to achieve security in a mobile ad hoc network because of its open nature, dynamically changing topology, lack of infrastructure and central management. A particular harmful attack that takes the advantage of these characteristics is the Sybil attack, in which a malicious node illegitimately claims multiple identities. This attack can exceedingly disrupt various operations of the mobile ad hoc networks such as data aggregation, voting, fair resource allocation scheme, misbehavior detection and routing mechanisms etc.
