A Test-Bed for Misbehavior Detection in Mobile Ad-hoc Networks: How Much can Watchdogs Really Do?
2004 (English)In: SIXTH IEEE WORKSHOP ON MOBILE COMPUTING SYSTEMS AND APPLICATIONS, PROCEEDINGS, 2004, 102-111 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Several misbehavior detection and reputation systems have been proposed for mobile ad-hoc networks, relying on direct network observation mechanisms, so-called watchdogs. While these approaches have so far only been evaluated in simulations and restricted to selfish packet dropping, we are interested in the capabilities of a watchdog detection component in a real network. In this paper we present our test-bed implementation of misbehavior detection. Following an evaluation of both the feasibility and detectability of attacks on routing and forwarding in the Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) protocol, we present the design of our test-bed. In order to add detection capabilities, we extend the concept of passive acknowledgment by mechanisms for partial dropping, packet modification, and fabrication detection. We combine DSR with Netfilter and APE to enable detection. We implement both attackers and detection and show their feasibility and limitations.
