A Protective Mechanism to Avoid Warm Hole and Sink-Hole Attack in Wireless Ad Hoc Network: Survey

Wireless ad-hoc network is autonomous and infrastructure less network. Wireless ad hoc network is particularly vulnerable due to its primary characteristics, like open medium, dynamic topology, distributed cooperation, and capability constraint. Routing plays an important role in the security of the entire network. Secure transmission of information in wireless ad-hoc environment is an important concern. Any attacker receive wireless signal by using transceiver and without being detected. This paper is to propose new approach for WSN security, i.e. Secure Energy Efficient Ad-hoc Routing (SEEAR) that considers cost of providing security and effects on energy efficiency.
