Detection of Black Hole Attack Using Neighborhood Set Based Method

snigdha arora, Rakesh Sharma


A mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) is a self-configuring network of mobile routers (and associated hosts) connected by wireless links - the union of which form an arbitrary topology. Black hole attack is a kind of attack in which a malicious node deceives the source node and advertises itself for having the shortest path. In this way the source node than establishes a route to malicious node and sends its entire data packet to the malicious node. By doing this, the malicious node can deprive the traffic from the source node. In this paper we have discussed about the approach for detecting black hole attack in MANET using neighborhood based method. This method can effectively detect black hole attack
