"Security Scheme for Distributed DoS in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks",
by Sugata Sanyal, Ajith Abraham, Dhaval Gada, Rajat Gogri, Punit Rathod, Zalak Dedhia, and Nirali Mody
in the Sixth International Workshop on Distributed Computing (IWDC), vol. 3326, LNCS. Springer, 2004In mobile ad hoc networks (MANET), various types of denial of service attacks (DoS) are possible because of the inherent limitations of its routing protocols. The attack of initiating/forwarding fake route requests (RREQs) can lead to hogging of network resources and hence denial of service to genuine nodes. This type of attack is hard to detect since malicious nodes mimic normal nodes in all aspects except that they do route discoveries much more frequently than the other nodes. A distrusted filtering mechanism is proposed to mitigate such situations and reduce the loss of throughput. The proposed mechanism could prevent this specific kind of DoS attack and does not use any additional network bandwidth
