IMPACT OF MALICIOUS ATTACKS IN MOBILE ADHOC NETWORKS

IJAERS/Vol. V/Issue IV/July-Sept, 2017/01-04

Authors: Shirish Bhosale, Prof Deepak Mehetre

ABSTRACT
Computers, servers, mobile devices communicate with each other through a network infrastructure, irrespective to wired or wireless communication. This communication is done through intermediate networks devices like routers, intermediate network providers, etc. Communication over network layer is done by packets. This packets travels from source to destination through channel, this channel has to be secure. Unsecure channel can lead to malicious activity. Channel of mobile Adhoc networks(MANETs) are more vulnerable to malicious activities than fixed infrastructure networks. One of malicious activity is denial of service. Packet drop attack, black hole attack, gray hole attack are denial of service attack. This paper shows the effects of packet drop attack, black hole attack and gray hole attack on AODV protocol under different performance metrics like throughput, packet drop rate.
