    There is a strong motivation for a node to deny packet forwarding to others and being selfish in MANET. Recently, some solutions have been proposed, but almost all of these solutions rely on the watchdog technique, which suffers from many drawbacks, particularly when using the power control technique. To overcome this ...
  • On Detecting Packets Droppers in MANET: A Novel Low Cost Approach

    One of the commonest threats that mobile ad hoc networks are vulnerable to is data packet dropping, which is caused either by malicious or selfish nodes. Most of the existing solutions to solve such misbehaviour rely on the watchdog technique, which suffers from many drawbacks, particularly when using the power control ...

    In this manuscript we deal with securing routing protocols of mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) against packet dropping misbehavior. More specifically, we propose a solution to protect control packets of reactive source routing protocols against. Most current proposals focus on data packets. Nonetheless, dropping control ...
  • Simulation evaluation of an energy efficient routing protocol for mobile ad hoc networks

    Energy conservation is one of the most important issues in ad hoc networks, where computers used are usually supplied with limited autonomous resources. Recent studies show that the energy consumed for routing data-packets in wireless ad hoc networks can be significantly reduced compared with the current min-hop max-power ...
  • Struggling against selfishness and black hole attacks in MANETs 

    Djenouri, Djamel; Badache, Nadjib
    In : Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing, (John Wiley & Sons, 2008-08)
    Since mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are infrastructureless and multi-hop by nature, transmitting packets from any node to another usually relies on services provided by intermediate nodes. This reliance introduces a new vulnerability; one node could launch a Black Hole DoS attack by participating in the routing protocol ...
