Security Against Spoofing Attack in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a collection of digital data terminals (nodes) that can communicate with each other without the use of a network infrastructure or any centralized administration. Due to open medium, dynamic topology, distributed cooperation, and constrained capabilities; ad hoc networks are more vulnerable to many types of attacks compared with wired networks. One of these attacks is spoofing attack; in this attack the adversary assumes the identity of another node in the network by modifying either the IP or MAC address in outgoing packets in order to appear as legitimate node and to establish a connection that will allow him to gain access to the other hosts and their sensitive data.
