Routing Attacks and their Countermeasures in MANETs: A Review

Sakshi Sachdeva, Ms. Parneet Kaur


A Mobile ad hoc network is a collection of mobile devices where each device participates in routing by forwarding data to other nodes.
MANETs can be employed in various situations ranging from emergency operations and disaster relief to military service and task forces, so
security is an essential component for protected communication between nodes. There are a number of challenges in security design as ad hoc
network is a decentralized network and vulnerable to various internal and external attacks. In this paper, we discuss about various attacks
affecting normal routing procedure, their countermeasures and defense mechanisms and comparison between these defense mechanisms.

Keywords: MANET, Attacks, Security, Detection, Routing
