Abstract
The focus of this paper is the implementation and evaluation of the most prominent attacks on mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) described in literature in a consistent manner to provide a concise comparison on attack types and parameters. Our objective is to thoroughly capture and analyze the impact of a range of attacks on network performance. To this end we define performance metrics and explore influence and damage caused by several attack types and parameter sets. Our evaluation results show that the degree of impact of attacks differs significantly depending on attack type and parameters used. Our performance metrics provide a consistent comparison of various attack types and parameters and thus a deeper insight into the interaction and the impact of attacks in MANETs.
