Effect of Black Hole Attack on AODV, OLSR and ZRP Protocol in MANETs
MANET routing protocols suffer from different kind of attacks on all the layers of its protocol stack. One of such attack which occurs at the network layer is black hole attack and the aim of this paper is to analyze the affect of black hole attack under three different categories of MANETs routing protocol i.e. reactive, proactive and hybrid namely as AODV, OLSR and ZRP. The authors have analyzed the performance degradation on these above mentioned protocols the performance evaluations of metrics chosen are end to end delay, throughput, when a percentage of nodes misbehave.
