Detection of Black Hole Attacks in MANET: A Novel Control Packet Approach

Seema ., Lata Dubey, Nitin Khanna


Abstract: MANET (Mobile Ad Hoc Network) could be a network that is infrastructure-less and therefore the nodes during this network will solely communicate with farther nodes in multi-hop manner. The nodes possess the property of quality and route is created on ad-hoc basis as per requirements. Because of this characteristic nature of MANET, it is susceptible to several routing and security attacks. The foremost hazardous and customary among those attacks is black hole attack that could be a reasonably packet drop attack. The variation of black-hole attack additionally proves to be unsafe once dead intelligently. The variations of black hole attack like gray hole attack and cooperative attack in conjunction with commonplace black hole attack becomes a bottleneck within the potency of secure MANET routing. During this study, a mechanism is planned which will mitigate the result of every kind of black hole attack and its variations. For it, a bogus destination is employed to create a lure for the malicious nodes and use of AODV (Ad hoc On-Demand Distance Vector) routing protocol is formed for correct detection of black hole attack. This work is compared with printed work EDRI (Extended knowledge Routing Information) and TLTB (Traffic Lightweight Trust Based) mechanism against parameters like packet delivery quantitative relation, normalized management load, dependability of path fashioned and accuracy of detection of offensive nodes in MATLAB 2017a surroundings.
