Attacks Finding and Prevention Techniques in MANET: A Survey

Bijender Bansal, Pankaj Gupta, Neelam Sharma


A Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) is a group of mobile nodes and is autonomous having statement through the insecure wireless links. The nodes in the network add and join the network energetically. Due to this kind of nature nodes are weak to various kinds of attacks. There are many threats in wireless Mobile Ad hoc Networks. MANETs suffers from interruption in which a hateful node may or may not participate in route discovery mechanism with an intension to corrupt the overall network performance. Intrusion has serious impact on routing and delivery ratio of packets. Many researchers have conducted different techniques to propose different types of detection and prevention schemes. Here various attacks types and a survey of the existing solutions is presented.
