Main Reference PaperImproving Selfish Node Detection in MANETs Using a Collaborative Watchdog, IEEE Communications Letters, May 2012.
  • Mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) are composed of mobile nodes connected by wireless links without using any pre-existent infrastructure. There is the possibility of existence of selfish nodes MANET without forwarding the data in order to save its own energy. This project introduces an efficient approach to reduce the detection time of selfish nodes in MANET using collaborative watchdog based on contact dissemination. If one node has previously detected a selfish node using its watchdog it can spread this information to other nodes when a contact occurs.

  • Reputation scheme provides nodes with incentives in the form of reputations to encourage nodes in honestly participating in the election process. The amount of incentives is based on the Vickrey, Clarke, and Groves (VCG) model to ensure truth-telling to be the dominant strategy for any node.
