Abstract

Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks (MANETs) allow to connect mobile devices in the absence of any fixed communications infrastructure. The routing function may be disrupted under cyber-attacks. We have developed a network simulator, based on the publicly available platform Ns2, to evaluate the performance of a number of routing protocols inMANETs under cyber attacks. For two simulation scenarios, considering respectively Denial of Service and Fabrication attacks, and Impersonation and Interception attacks, the Fisheye State Routing protocol and the Zone Routing Protocol exhibit the best performance.
