The concept of byzantine attack comes from byzantine generals problem. In this abstract concept, the loyal byzantine army general are suppose to coordinate in a battlefield to conclude a common plan in the presence of traitor generals which can disrupt such coordination. This generals problem resembles the attacks initiated by authenticated nodes/devices in ad hoc network to disrupt the network. Although these attacks can be initiated individually but are more devastating if initiate in a combined way. This paper discusses and highlights the performance degradation of AODV routing protocol, mainly when the byzantine attack are initiated in a combination.
