MARS: Misbehavior Detection in Ad Hoc Networks
Source: Washington State University
To detect misbehavior on data and mitigate adverse effects, the authors propose and evaluate a MultipAth Routing Single path transmission (MARS) scheme. The MARS combines multipath routing, single path data transmission, and end-to-end feedback mechanism together to provide more comprehensive protection against misbehavior from individual or cooperating misbehaving nodes. The MARS scheme and its enhancement EMARS are evaluated by means of simulation under various adverse scenarios. The simulation results show that the MARS and E-MARS schemes provide better network performance and considerable protection to data transmission than some DSR-based transmission systems at the expense of moderate overhead.
