AODV is a well-known reactive protocol designed for MANET routing. All MANET routing protocols are designed based on the assumption that all nodes cooperate without maliciously disrupting the operation of the routing protocol. In this paper, we study the performance of AODV routing protocol in the presence of some of the well-deﬁned attacks in MANET. We use NS-2 network simulator to analyse the impacts of blackhole, grayhole, selﬁsh and ﬂooding attacks on AODV protocol performance. While the blackhole and ﬂooding attacks have a severe impact on the AODV performance, the selﬁsh and grayhole attacks have less signiﬁcant effect on it.
