An approach to detect and remove wormhole and black hole attacks from mobile ad-hoc network using BDS methodology


Harjit Kaur

MANET is distributed network in which all activities are executed by the nodes, these nodes are free to go in and out of the network at any point of time. All activities performed by the network like discovering the topology, delivery of data packets and internal management communications. These communications is performed without establishing any central administrator. When nodes, which are performing communication, are mobile nodes (i.e., moves from one position to another) then it is called a Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET), MANET could be a set of self-configurable mobile nodes. In a MANET, communication between the mobile devices is carried out by some intermediate devices called routers. All routing functionality is merged into mobile nodes. Routing protocols helps to transfer the packets to destination. The very facts that mobile Ad-hoc network is innovative & difficult areas of wireless networks, makes it more vulnerable in term of flooding & routing attacks. Some attacks like Black Hole attacks, Wormhole attacks, Denial of Service attacks, that completely drops the packets in MANET, it has minimum shortest path to destination in the network without moving them to forward. Security is a critical challenge for unstructured network nodes participating in communication in Mobile Ad-hoc Network. In this paper, we provide a secure scheme to overcome such types of threats. The main aim of this work is to detection and removal of the Black Hole and Wormhole Attacks to protect the Network and improve the packet delivery fraction, using Bait scheme.
