The Internet is moving from the traditional desktop network paradigm to a ubiquitous paradigm where a multitude of small computing devices such as computer chips and smart sensors are involved in daily activities and routines. This means that a rapidly growing amount of devices are connected to the Internet. At the same time, infrastructure-less and self-configuring systems like Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANET) are gaining popularity since they provide a possibility for mobile devices to share information with each other without being dependent on a core infrastructure. Routing security in MANETs is, however, a significant challenge to wide scale adoption. One of the most severe security threats to MANET routing is the wormhole attack due to its ability to disrupt a significant proportion of network traffic, while simultaneously being difficult to detect. This paper provides an overview of recent research findings on wormhole attack detection in MANETs collected from a joint research project with Arcada University of Applied Sciences in Finland and The Open University, UK.
