Detecting malicious dropping packets is a crucial issue in networks to minimize various security attacks such as blackhole, greyhole, and wormhole attacks. All networks drop the packets in the presence of collisions, channel errors and the network traffic exceeds its capacities. All the existing detection algorithms have addressed this issue by using user-defined threshold value. But these attacks could not able to solve it because too many dropped packets imply malicious intent. To address this problem in this paper the authors proposed a model to monitor a node for detecting malicious packet dropping.
