Detection and Prevention of Black hole Attack in Mobile Ad hoc Network: a Survey

Main Article Content

Drashti S Vyas


Mobile ad hoc networks are useful when there is no infrastructure available. It provides any where, any time communication. In MANET nodes are mobile and topology is unpredictable. Mobile ad hoc networks are more vulnerable to malicious attacks. Security is very crucial parameter for mobile ad hoc network because of its characteristics such as limited power and bandwidth, dynamic topology and open medium. Possible attacks on mobile ad hoc networks include wormhole. Denial of service, blackhole grayhole, sinkhole etc. Blackhole attack is very dangerous for mobile ad hoc networks because it drops all the packets that it receives. So the packet delivery ratio and throughput decreases sharply. We have presented several existing methods to detect black hole attack in mobile ad hoc network.
