Intrusion Detection in Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks: A Mobile Agent Approach Upinder Kaur and R.B. Patel Dept. of Computer Engineering, M. M. Engineering College, Mullana-133203, Haryana, INDIA [email protected] , [email protected] Abstract In this paper we have presented design and implementation of a prototype for intrusion detection using mobile agents (MAs) in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). In this prototype each node runs intrusion detection system locally and equally cooperates with other intrusion detection systems running on other nodes. The proposed prototype is implemented and validated on PMADE (Platform for MA Distribution and Execution). Keywords: IDS, Routing, MANET, Mobile Agent 1. Introduction Mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) are wireless networks in which the mobile nodes exchange information without the help of any predefined network infrastructure. Such networks are also called spontaneous networks. Finding and maintaining communication routes in MANET is a major challenge, especially with respect to security because wireless access links makes the network more vulnerable to many attacks like passive eavesdropping, active impersonation, and denial of services. Most existing solution consists in some kind of preventing security, usually based on authentication [2], these preventive security services, such as intrusion detection. In this paper we have presented a Mobile Agent [1] Based Intrusion Detection System (MABIDS), derived from a MANET requirement analysis. We have used the mobility and autonomy associated with MAs to provide an efficient and flexible solution to poor connectivity and limited bandwidth in MANET context. Moreover, we allow a complete distribution only the data collection, which is the common approach in the most of existing MA, based intrusion detection system (IDS). We have implemented and tested MABIDS on PMADE (Platform for MA Distribution and Execution) [1]. Rest of the paper is organized as follows. Section 2 presents MABIDS. Anomaly detection in MANETs is discussed in Section 3. Implementation of MABIDS is presented in Section 4. Section 5 gives related works and article is concluded in Section 6. 2. Architecture of MABIDS Intrusion detection is based in collection and analysis of system and network audit data. Upon detection, intrusions should be reported to security management. Also, an automatic response, aiming to eliminate the causes and effects of the intrusion, may be triggered. Given the lack of centralization, the mobility of the nodes and the wireless nature of link connection in the MANET environment, some (if not all) tasks required for the intrusion detection process described above should be executed is a distributed and cooperative manner. Architecture of MABIDS is shown in Figure 1, which contains the System Administrator (SA) is in charge of harmonizing all the activities among the modules, such as Sensor Management (SM), Event Manager (EM), Response Agent (RA), IDS Agents Framework, and PMADE.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
