Design &Security Issues for Wormhole Attacks in Wireless Ad Hoc Networks
Mali Basaveshwar Laxman, Scholar of Singhania University, India.
Wireless communications offer organizations and users many benefits, such as portability, flexibility, increased productivity, and lower installation costs. Wireless technologies cover a broad range of differing capabilities oriented toward different uses and needs. Wireless local area network (WLAN) devices. Ad hoc networks, such as those enabled by Bluetooth, allow data synchronization with network systems and application sharing between devices. However, risks are inherent in any wireless technology. The loss of confidentiality and integrity and the threat of denial of service (DoS) attacks are risks typically associated with wireless communications. Unauthorized users may gain access to an organization’s systems and information, corrupt the organization’s data, consume network bandwidth, degrade network performance, launch attacks that prevent authorized users from accessing the network, or use the organization’s resources to launch attacks on other networks. As mobile ad hoc network applications are deployed, security emerges as a central requirement.
