MANETs are vulnerable to different kinds of attacks due to inherent properties such as wireless medium, dynamic topology, distributed operation and constrained capability. One of the well-known attacks is the Black Hole attack which is most common in the on-demand routing protocols such as AODV. In this paper, we simulate the Black-hole attack in AODV using NS2 Simulator for both SANETS and MANETS by varying node density in the context of responsive and non-responsive traffic. From the simulation results, the impact of Black-hole attack on the performance of AODV QOS metrics i.e., throughput, packet delivery ratio is less, for end-to-end delay, routing load is high in MANET and SANET under responsive (TCP) and non-responsive traffic (UDP).
