Mobile users like to use their own consumer electronic devices anywhere and at anytime to access multimedia data. Hence, we expect that wireless ad hoc networks will be widely used in the near future since these networks form the topology with low cost on the fly. However, consumer electronic devices generally operate on limited battery power and therefore are vulnerable to security threats like data flooding attacks. The data flooding attack causes Denial of Service (DoS) attacks by flooding many data packets. However, there are a few existing defense systems against data flooding attacks. Moreover, the existing schemes may not guarantee the Quality of Service (QoS) of burst traffic since multimedia data are usually burst. Therefore, we propose a novel defense mechanism against data flooding attacks with the aim of enhancing the throughput. The simulation results show that the proposed scheme enhances the throughput of burst traffic
