A Study on Network Security attacks on ad hoc wireless networks
Dr. R. Madhanmohan
Attacks on ad hoc wireless networks can be classified into two broad categories, namely, passive and active attacks. A passive attack does not disrupt the operation of the network; the adversary snoops the data exchanged in the network without altering it. Here, the requirement of confidentiality can be violated if an adversary is also able to interpret the data gathered through snooping. Detection of passive attacks is very difficult since the operation of the network itself does not get affected. One way of overcoming such problems is to use powerful encryption mechanisms to encrypt the data being transmitted, thereby making it impossible for eavesdroppers to obtain any useful information from the data overheard.
