Several applications of mobile ad hoc networks select geographical routing especially the Greedy Perimeter Stateless Routing (GPSR) protocol due to its scalability, efficiency, and ability to support location based applications. However, there are many security issues in protecting location information, which can easily be abused by attackers. Location based adversarial activities affect the operation and performance of geographical routing protocols. There are only a few works on the literature that studied the impact of location based attacks on geographical routing.
