The purpose of this Major Qualifying Project was to experimentally evaluate the energy consumption of mobile ad hoc routing protocols under different mobility and attack conditions. Using a small wireless network and varying routing protocols, mobility and attack effects were observed at different OSI layers. Results were parameterized into a general model for energy drain and extrapolated to other node configurations. The results indicate that ad hoc wireless routers suffer from potentially serious (but bounded) energy-based denial-of-service vulnerabilities.
