Performance of AODV Against Black Hole Attacks in Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks

Wireless Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a self-configuring network which is composed of several movable mobile nodes. These mobile nodes communicate with each other without any infrastructure. As wireless ad-hoc networks lack an infrastructure, they are exposed to a lot of attacks. One of these attacks is the Black Hole attack. In Black Hole attack, a malicious node falsely advertises shortest path to the destination node and absorbs all data packets in it. In this way, all packets in the network are dropped. In this paper, performance of AODV is evaluated in presence of black hole attack (malicious node) and without black hole attack with CBR traffic under different scalable network mobility. For this analysis RWP model is used.
