AN OVERVIEW OF SECURITY IN AD HOC WIRELESS NETWORKS AND DIFFERENT TYPES OF ATTACKS SOLUTIONS PROPOSED FOR ENSURING NETWORK SECURITY
Keywords:MANET : Security attacks and solutions.
Wireless networking technology have spawned a slew of new internet applications. One of the most promising areas of wireless network research and development is the mobile ad hoc network (MANET). It's no surprise that wireless ad-hoc networks have become one of the most exciting and dynamic fields of communication and networking in recent years. Wireless connectivity between mobile devices (laptops, smart phones) allow them to interact with each other and work together in a distributed way to offer the essential network capabilities without the need for a permanent infrastructure. This is known as a "distributed network." Networks that operate in this manner, whether on their own or in conjunction with other networks like cellular or the Internet, allow for an abundance of new and fascinating applications to emerge. Various sorts of assaults against AD HOC wireless networks are discussed, as well as the security measures that may be taken to combat these threats.
