Availability is important property of Mobile ad hoc network (MANETs), without which routing & other type of communication is not possible. Availability is compromised by Denial of Service (DOS) attacks. Due to inherent property of MANET, they are susceptible to different kinds of DOS attacks. This paper aims to classify DOS attacks on MANETs, which are primarily performed on network and lower layers. Counter measuring techniques of these DOS attacks are also presented.
