Malicious data packet flooding attacks interfere with services of a victim node such as laptop computer, cellular phone, etc. in wireless ad hoc networks. The victim node is hard to distinguish traffics performing data packet flooding attacks from normal burst traffics. Hence, this paper proposes a period-based scheme so as to prevent from malicious data packet flooding attacks with enhancing the throughput of burst traffics. The simulation results show that the proposed scheme enhances the throughput of burst traffics.
