Mobile Ad-hoc Networks consist of a group of nodes with wireless connectivity forming a network without fixed infrastructure or centralized administration. Such networks are very dynamic due to nodes' mobility. This causes frequent unpredictable changes in topology, a characteristic that must be dealt with using special routing protocols. The Ad-hoc on Demand Distance Vector (AODV) is one of the most commonly used routing protocols, where nodes act as routers and routes are only provided on demand. In this paper, we evaluate the AODV's performance in the presence of two MANET attacks: Hello flood and flooding attacks. © 2013 IEEE.
