Analyzing the Effects of Ad Hoc Security in MANET with AODV

  • Ningthoujam Chidananda Singh, Dr.Avinash Sharma


Ad hoc networks are also known as MANET, an acronym for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks. These are used to establish a network system in wireless electronically operated equipment like mobile phones, laptops, etc. Networks like these are capable of maintaining themselves, are fully dynamic and temporary, but on the negative part, they are very much prone to various security attacks. Security has always been a major issue for networks like that of the ad hoc and other similar networks because they are an open medium, are less dependent on related algorithms, and have topologies that are constantly changing. One of the most vicious attacks that happen on networks like that of the ad hoc is a black hole attack, where the malicious nodes turn into the black hole and eat up data packets before they can reach the destination node. In the following article, we will discuss the working and efficiency of the defense mechanism that is being used to fight the security issues in the network. We will also discuss the simulation that has been used and the results that it has produced, which will support the efficiency and effectiveness of the new and modified algorithm.
