This Project work explores resource depletion attacks at the routing protocol layer, which permanently disable networks by quickly draining nodes battery power. The ?Vampire? attacks are not specific to any specific protocol, but rather rely on the properties of many popular classes of routing protocols. To mitigate these types of attacks, include a new proof-of-concept protocol and AODV protocol that provably bounds the damage caused by Vampires during the packet forwarding phase.
