Abstract

The main essential criterion for system design in wireless mobile ad hoc networks is to optimize energy utilization. It affects the survival of the network as the link is broken when the energy capacity is limited and the lost energy increases rapidly. Even the infrastructure less and high dependency on the neighbor node for routing makes it is open for various attacks, especially targeting for energy depletion. Therefore, to design a routing protocol, it must consider the performance of the sensor node to ensure network connectivity and extend network life. In this paper, we propose a route assertion mechanism (RAM) to prevent energy exhaustion attacks such as "vampire attack" by nodes. It proposes two procedures to alleviate two kinds of vampire attacks. It first proposes an "Assertion Route" procedure that constructs a looping path to predict carousal attacks and reduce unwanted energy losses. Secondly, it presents an "Assertion of the Route Length " procedure that identifies longer stretch attack paths based on path length comparisons. The experimental results analysis compared to traditional power-aware routing protocols show enhancement in energy conservation and long network lifetime.
