Performance Analysis of Observation Based Cooperation Enforcement in Ad Hoc Networks

Abstract

Node misbehavior due to selfish or malicious behavior could significantly degrade the performance of MANET because most existing routing protocols in MANET aim to find the most efficient path. Overhearing and reputation based cooperation schemes have been used to detect and isolate the misbehaving nodes as well as to force them to cooperate. Performance analysis has been done for the network traffic using OCEAN over DSR on ns2 while considering the low energy levels for mobile nodes. Throughput, energy level, routing packets and normalized routing overhead are analyzed for OCEAN and normal DSR to show the impact of OCEAN on the overall network performance.
