In ad hoc network the byzantine attack is the most safety threads as it bring to a halt in the communication of nodes in the network and behave like a fair nodes while take part normally in the network. It is very important in the network to provide the communication between the nodes is to be error free and communication takes place in a particular time period. In a tree based topology every node is take part in communication with other nodes. So it is major challenge to protect the data transmission between the nodes in the network as many types of attacks are collaborating with byzantine attack.
