Detection of Black Holes in MANET Using Collaborative Watchdog with Fuzzy Logic

Authors: S. Balaji, E. Golden Julie, Y. Harold Robinson, M. Rajaram


Mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a self-configuring network of mobile node connected without wires. A Fuzzy Logic Based Collaborative watchdog approach is used to reduce the detection time of misbehaved nodes and increase the overall truthfulness. This methodology will increase the secure efficient routing by detecting the Black Holes attacks. The simulation results proved that this method improved the energy, reduced the delay and also improved the overall performance of the detecting black hole attacks in MANET.

Keywords: Fuzzy Logic, manet, AODV, collaborative watchdog
