Abstract

A Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) is one of the up-to-date technologies supporting communication of mobile devices. It consists of an open environment that comprises a set of mobile, decentralized, and self-organized nodes. MANET is harder to be secured than the other types of static networks. There are many types of attacks that could paralyze the life of the mobile nodes in MANET. One of the most dangerous attacks is the Denial of Service attack (DoS), which in turn could be performed through the Resource Consumption Attack (RCA) over Ad-hoc On demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol. This paper analyzes and studies the RCA effecting factors on AODV performance metrics namely throughput and end-to-end delay under varying the number of connections between the source and the destination and number of RCA attackers number.
