Black Hole Attack Prevention and Detection Solutions on AODV Routing Protocol in MANET

Authors(1) :-Pandi Selvam Raman

Mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a self-configuring network that is formed via wireless links by a collection of mobile nodes without the help of a fixed infrastructure or centralized management. Securing wireless ad hoc networks is particularly difficult for many reasons including vulnerability of channels and nodes, absence of infrastructure, dynamically changing topology and etc. Black Hole attack is one of the major attack and this detection and prevention is still considered as a challenging task in ad hoc networks. Therefore this paper compares various Black Hole attack prevention and detection solutions that are explored recently.
