  A Review on Detection and Isolation of Selective Packet Drop Attack in MANET  
  Authors : Sandeep Singh; Dr. Rajinder Singh

In MANET many vulnerable attacks like passive and active are possible, by which performance of the network goes slow down. Among all the attacks discussed in literature selective packet drop attack is the most common active type of attacks. Selective packet Drop attack is the partial denial of service attacks which is triggered by the malicious nodes in the network. In the previous research, many techniques have been proposed to isolate Selective attacks from the network. When Selective packet attack is triggered in the network, throughput of the network reduced and delay increase as steady rate. In my research, I will use more optimized technique to improve the performance of the network by isolating the selective packet drop attack in AODV Protocol.

Mobile ad-hoc network have been wast area of research work from past few years because its widely used application in battlefield and business purpose. Due to openness and dynamic topology network is vulnerable from attacker. This research discussed MANET, its attack which trigger on it and various techniques to isolate and prevent selective packet drop attack which degrade the system performance by decreasing throughput, increasing latency and end-to-end delay. There is acknowledgement and IDS based schema which prevent this attack in AODV protocol. This feature work implemented new algorithm based on monitor node technique which improves network efficiency.
