A Review on Denial of Service Attack in MANET

Rakhi Jaiswal, Durgesh Wadbude


Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is a kind of computer network that is normally utilized for environmental observation and defense observation. WSNs are frequently affected by jamming attacks, flooding attack and broadcast attacks. Securing WSN is a difficult task. The well-known attack in WSN is Denial of Service (DoS) attack. DoS attack is caused by jamming single or group of nodes and there by disturbing the communication. In this paper presenting a brief study on WSN and its applications providing a review on DoS attack as well as flooding attack, their respective types, and security concerns.

Keywords: Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), Security, Denial of Service Attack, Flooding Attack
