IDS Scheme for Blackhole Attack on MANETs

Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 235)


Blackhole attack is one of typical intrusion to routing function on Mobile Ad-hoc Network(MANET)s. Blackhole attacking may cause severe transmission performance deterioration of network, because of absorption of all packets be delivered to destination and all routing messages be propagated to nodes on MANETs. Detecting and avoiding of blackhole attacking from malicious is very important to keep network performance. In this paper, an Intrusion Detection System (IDS) scheme for blackhole attack on MANETs is suggested with pre-routing. Transmission performance of this suggested scheme is shown with NS-2 simulations.
