A Review on Security Attacks in Mobile Ad-hoc Networks

Amandeep Kaur [52] | Dr. Amardeep Singh

Abstract: Security is a major concern for safe communication between mobile nodes in an alien environment. In alien environments; attackers can bunch active and passive attacks against imperceptible routing in routing message and data packets. In this; we focus on significant security attacks in Mobile ad hoc networks. MANET has no clear immunity so; it is available to both legitimate users and malicious attackers. In the existence of malicious nodes; one of the main objectives in MANET is to design the robust security solution that can protect MANET from various routing attacks. However; these solutions are not correct for MANET resource constraints; i. e. ; battery power and limited bandwidth. Mobile ad-hoc network can operate in isolation or in coordination with a wired infrastructure. This flexibility along with their self organizing facilities is some of MANET's biggest strengths; as well as their biggest security vulnerabilities. In this paper different routing attacks; such as active (black hole; spoofing; wormhole; flooding;) and passive (traffic monitoring; traffic analysis; eavesdropping) are described.
