Overdue to attributes of open medium, absence of framework, dynamic network topology, cooperative algorithms, lack of centralized monitoring and resource constraints, ad hoc networks are unprotected to many kinds of attacks, among which wormhole attack is chosen as the topic of discussion. This attack, when launched during route finding phase can penetrate incorrect route/topology data into the network thereby, beat the intention of routing algorithms. Wormhole attacks in ad-hoc networks can be immensely disturbing in some conditions specifically when they lead to rushing attacks.
