The research aims for detection and provide the counter measure for attacks such as misrouting, identity delegation, colluding collision, colluding injected attack and power control in the wireless adhoc networks. The above mentioned attacks easily encountered in wireless adhoc networks. Due to these attacks many packets are dropped in the intermediate path before reaching the destination. The research introduce the protocol called SNDP (Secure Neighbor Discovery Protocol) that can detect these attacks and isolate packet dropping attack efficiently and use reactive routing protocol such as AODV(Ad-Hoc On-demand Distance Vector) technique to provide the counter measure for preventing the packet loss against misrouting.
