Effect of Black Hole attack on MANET routing protocols

Author : Akshata Prabhu 1 Shobha Krishnan 2

Date of Publication :7th November 2015

Abstract: Mobile ad hoc networks are the extension of wireless networks. They play an important role in military applications, home applications etc. these networks are threatened by various security attacks such as Modification, Fabrication attack, Denial of Service attack, Sybil attack, Worm hole attack, Sleep Deprivation attack, Routing table Overflow etc. Black hole attack is an active attack on mobile ad hoc network. Due to its nature , the attacker makes the source node send all data packets to a Blackhole node that ends up dropping all the packets. In this paper an effect of black hole attack on Ad hoc on-demand distance vector routing protocol (AODV) and Ad hoc on-demand Multi path distance vector routing protocol (AOMDV) routing protocols will be studied. Effect of attack on parameters like dropped packets, throughput and end to end delay is analyzed.
