Abstract: There has been considerable use of many devices that run on wireless infrastructure such as the mobile ad hoc network (MANET). MANET has become a preferred means of communication in recent times. The reliability and security aspects of MANET need to be investigated further to provide robust and reliable communication. However, current literature shows that little work has been done towards reliability analysis of MANET. The paper gives the reliability analysis of MANET with black hole attack running DSDV routing protocol. NS-2.35 simulation software is used to analyse the impact of black hole attack on the reliability of MANET under destination sequenced distance vector (DSDV) routing protocol. Simulation result shows that the reliability of MANET under multiple black hole attack is lower than the reliability of MANET under single black hole attack in DSDV routing protocol.

Keywords: mobile ad hoc network; MANET; black hole attack; network reliability; destination sequenced distance vector routing protocol.
