Abstract

Grayhole attack is such an attack which can harm the mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) by misbehaving during data transmission and thus, the network performance is compromised; therefore, it is imperative to detect and prevent this unpredictable attack as early as possible. In this paper, this issue is addressed with a methodology which makes use of the improved extended data routing information (I-EDRI) table to record packet forwarding behavior of neighbors. The proposed method can not only detect a malicious node, but also isolate that node by propagating an alert message to other nodes in the network, and in turn it can improve the network performance significantly.
