The lack of centralised infrastructure in adhoc network makes it vulnerable to various attacks. MANET routing disrupts if the participating node start performing malicious activity instead of the intended function. One such specific attack is a blackhole attack in which malicious node falsely claiming itself as having the fresh and shortest path to the destination. In this paper, we propose a protocol for avoiding blackhole attack without the contraint of special hardware and dependency on… CONTINUE READING
