Injection and Evaluation of New Attacks on Ad Hoc Proactive Routing Algorithms
Providing security of communications in Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) is one of the most significant fields for researchers. In order to provide security, the first step is to recognize vulnerabilities and examine different implementable attacks regarding such networks. Secure routing is one of the most important security blind spots regarding MANETs. Security of routing in MANETs can be endangered by uncooperative behavior of nodes. Uncooperative behavior can be done selfishly by refraining from participation in routing or maliciously in the form of an attack against network. One of the most famous and devastating routing attacks regarding MANETs is Black hole.
