In this paper, we investigate the impact of Route REQuest (RREQ) flooding attack on mobile ad hoc network (MANET). RREQ flooding is performed by nodes that intend to degrade the network performance and are generally called malicious nodes.

Using simulations, we show that the basic route discovery mechanism used byfatcat:fmablid7pza4bh5mqxxnyyuame
