Security in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs)

Recently, I was involved in a survey of Security Requirements in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs). MANETs is an emerging field of research. At the end of survey, I, alongwith my colleagues wrote-up a research paper. I’ve uploaded that research paper, alongwith the presentation for easy access to anyone who is interested in this area of research.

The participants of the survey were: (my name is the second one 😉 )

Farid Zafar Sheikh , M. Ali Akbar , M. Zulkifl Khalid , Wasif Mehmood
Electrical Department, College of Electrical & Mechanical Engineering,
National University of Sciences and Technology, Rawalpindi, Pakistan


In this paper, we describe the security issues in Mobile Ad Hoc networks. A malicious attack by nodes in networks significantly affects the Quality of Service delivered by the network and disrupts the route discovery process. This problem is especially serious in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) as traditional methods created to prevent such attacks on wired networks are only partially successful when applied to mobile networks. We present some techniques to secure Mobile Ad Hoc Networks from these attacks. We take AODV as an example and develop a security mechanism to protect its routing information.
