Routing Attack Surveyfor Mobile Ad Hoc Network
In the last decade, Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) have emerged as a major next generation wireless networking technology. However, MANETs are vulnerable to various attacks at all layers, including in particular the network layer. Early work in MANET research has mainly focused on developing an efficient routing mechanism in such a highly dynamic and resource constrained network. At present, several efficient routing protocols have been proposed for MANET. Most of these protocols assume a trusted and cooperative environment. However, in the presence of malicious nodes, the networks are vulnerable to various kinds of attacks. In MANET, routing attacks are particularly serious.
