Research Area:  Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
Mobile ad hoc network is self organizing network of nodes that are mobile which are connected by wireless links having no centralized access point and also no fixed infrastructure. The dynamic topology of MANET permits nodes to leave or join the network at any time they wish. Black hole attack is very serious issue in MANET. In black hole attack, a node which is malicious sends the route reply message to the source node to publicize itself for having the shortest path to the destination node. A malicious node utilized the routing protocol to advertise itself. This attack is having shortest path to the node whose packets it want to intercept. While transferring the data from the source node to destination node, it must be delivered privately to the recipient side. There are many methods present to avoid black hole attack. In this method, black hole attack is prevented through SRD-AODV. By using this method, we are able to prevent black hole attack by using AODV protocol in an effective way.
