Mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) are especially vulnerable to attacks because of lacking infrastructure and data transfer using radio communication. In the past various types of MANET attacks have been detected and analyzed. In this article primary attack methods (black hole, wormhole, rushing, and Sybil) to MANET routing using the Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) protocol are modelled and analyzed in a consistent way. This process comprises a semi-formal analysis of pre-conditions (costs, probability of success, required skills) and resulting damage from each attack by means of attack trees. We thereby get a uniform way of modelling and analyzing various attacks to MANET routing that allows to directly compare the different attacks and to assess the risks.
