Packet Drop Attack Detection Techniques in Wireless Ad hoc Networks: A Review

  title={Packet Drop Attack Detection Techniques in Wireless Ad hoc Networks: A Review},
  author={Kennedy Edemacu and Martin Euku and Richard Ssekibuule},
Wireless ad hoc networks have gained lots of attention due to their ease and low cost of deployment. This has made ad hoc networks of great importance in numerous military and civilian applications. But, the lack of centralized management of these networks makes them vulnerable to a number of security attacks. One of the attacks is packet drop attack, where a compromised node drops packets maliciously. Several techniques have been proposed to detect the packet drop attack in wireless ad hoc… CONTINUE READING
