On the Way of Protecting MANETs Against Security Threats: A Proactive Approach

Roberto Magán-Carrión; Bernabe Dorronsoro
Abstract:
MANETs are specially vulnerable against security attacks. For protecting them, security solutions are traditionally addressed by the so-called intrusion detection and response systems. Nevertheless, using reactive (response) solutions, once the attack is detected, rely in long attack mitigation times. In this work, we propose the use of relay node placement techniques as proactive security solutions. Preliminary experimentation demonstrates the suitability and feasibility of such approaches, not only in reducing the attack mitigation time but in replacing detection and response based traditional solutions.
