Abstract
This report proposes a new method to reliably detect wormhole attacks in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) by carefully observing the propagation of standard routing control packets through the network. The method is compatible with standard routing techniques and does not require additional hardware or sophisticated processing. The detection scheme is introduced and motivated using an intuitive argument, following which a mathematical analysis is performed that supports the heuristics. A simulation of the scheme demonstrates its effectiveness in dense MANETs and confirms the theory. Suggestions for future development are proposed to further enhance detection accuracy.
