An attacker model for MANET routing security
Mobile ad-hoc networks are becoming ever more popular due to their flexibility, low cost, and ease of deployment. However, to achieve these benefits the network must employ a sophisticated routing protocol. Early proposed routing protocols were not designed to operate in the presence of attackers. There have been many subsequent attempts to secure these protocols, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. To allow for a comparison of these secure protocols, a single common attacker model is needed. Our first contribution in this work is to develop a comprehensive attacker model categorizing attackers based on their capabilities. This is in contrast to the existing models which seek to categorize attacks and then map that categorization back onto the attackers. Our second contribution is an analysis of the SAODV routing protocol using our new model, which demonstrates the structured approach inherent in our model and its benefits compared to existing work.
