A Cooperative Intrusion Detection System for Sleep Deprivation Attack Using Neuro-Fuzzy Classifier in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

Conference paper
Part of the Smart Innovation, Systems and Technologies book series (SIST, volume 32)


This paper proposed a soft computing based solution for a very popular attack, i.e. sleep deprivation attack in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). As a soft computing solution, neuro-fuzzy classifier is used in binary form to detect the normal and abnormal activities in MANETs. The proposed detection scheme is based on distributed and cooperative architecture of intrusion detection system and simulations have been carried out through Qualnet simulator and MATLAB toolbox that shows the results of proposed solution in respect of performance metrics very effectively.
