Abstract: In mobile Ad-Hoc networks, each node of the network must contribute in the process of communication and routing. However this contribution can expose the network to several types of attackers. In this paper, we study the impact of one attack called BLACK-HOLE, on Ad hoc On-Demand Distance Vector routing protocol. In this attack a malicious node can be placed between two or several nodes, and begin dropping all packets from a source and breaking communications between nodes. The vulnerability of the route discovery packets is exploited by the attacker with a simple modification in the routing protocol, in order to control all the traffic between nodes. In this study we simulate the attack with NS2, taking into account the mobility of the network and the attacker, the position of the attacker and finally the number of the attackers. We will also see the impact of this attack in a higher number of loss packet compared with AODV in normal situation.
