Understanding Vulnerability of Adhoc Networks Under Malicious Node Attacks
As the importance of the mobile ad hoc network is growing and their usage is increasing in sensitive applications like military, disaster relief, Tsunami, the issues of security has become important. The routing in MANETs which is already complex due to multi hop nature of ad hoc network faces a lot of problems in terms of security. In this paper, the authors have simulated Ad hoc Network under various conditions and tabulated the throughput and packet drops of the nodes in the network under each condition. This enables them to understand the network vulnerability under the malicious node attack and the network behavior thereafter.
