Security Assessment of DSDV Protocol in Manet
Security is an essential service for wired and wireless network communications. The success of mobile ad hoc networks mainly depends on in its security level. The characteristics of mobile ad hoc network (MANET) has many challenges and opportunities in achieving security parameters such as confidentiality, authentication, integrity, availability and non-repudiation. There are different type of attacks that target the weak points of MANET, Black-hole attack and Gray hole attack are the most prominent among these. Most of the research is focused on detect and how avoid these attacks by compromising the performance of the network. In this paper, we present security analysis of routing protocol in general and DSDV in particular under Grayhole attack.
