JellyFish attack: Analysis, detection and countermeasure in TCP-based MANET
Abstract— Mobile ad hoc networks < Final Year Projects 2016 > are vulnerable to various types of attacks due to inherently in-secure wireless communication medium and multicopy routing communication process. In this paper, we analyze the behavior and impact of JellyFish attack over TCP-based MANETs. We have implemented and evaluated all three variants of JellyFish attack namely JF-reorder, JF-delay and JF-drop through simulation processes. These attacks exploit the behavior of closed loop protocols such as TCP and disturb the communication process without disobeying any protocol rules, thus the detection process becomes difﬁcult.Consequently, trafﬁc is disrupted leading to degradation in network throughput. Through extensive simulation results that are obtained using an industry standard scalable network simulator called EXata-Cyber, impact of these attacks in terms of network throughput, overhead incurred and end-to-end delay is analyzed and used for devising detection and countermeasure.
