Security Techniques Review for Blackhole, Grayhole and Wormhole Attacks in Manet
Mobile Adhoc Network (MANET) is an infrastructure-less multi hop wireless network which does not employ any central access point for routing and authentication. AODV is most commonly used routing protocol in MANET which does not have any security mechanism to detect malicious activities in the network. Blackhole, Grayhole and Wormhole are frequently occurring Network Layer Attacks in MANET. In the research work carried out in past on these three attacks, techniques are proposed to detect and eliminate either an individual type of attack or combination of any two types of attacks. But a network can exist with a presence of all these three types of malicious nodes. In that case any of the past technique would be insufficient to make the network fully attack-free. The purpose of this study is to understand the patterns of these three types of attacks and their individual/combined avoidance technique to develop a technique in future to address these three attacks collectively.
