A Survey on AODV Approach for Efficient Detection and Mitigation of Wormhole Attack in MANET

Shilpa Vijay, Abhishek Dubey


A Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) is a foundation significantly less or a self-designed aggregating of mobile nodes that can aimlessly control their geographic places such that those networks have dynamic topologies and random mobility with restricted assets. A few attackers attack on MANET to adjust packets and break the connections sooner or later of communiqué. Wormhole attack is one of the active internal attacks in which or extra attacker nodes tunnel the traffic from one place to some other territory inside the network. MANETs might be establishment quick and requiring little to no effort in contrast with foundation systems which might be wired or remote. Wormhole nodes fake a route that is shorter than the original one inside the network means it create phantasm for the valid node so that they consider that the route is shorter than the unique one. But it isn't important that the path via wormhole nodes can be shorter. In this paper, the detailed survey has been performed for various attacks in MANETs. Problem associated with MANETs and Characterstics about MANET.

Keywords: AODV, MANETs, wormhole attack, types of attacks, MANETs’ applications and characteristics
