Q1. What have the authors contributed in "A model of data forwarding in manets for lightweight detection of malicious packet dropping" ?
This work introduces a model of data forwarding in MANETs which is used for recognizing malicious packet dropping behaviors. Second, the authors propose an anomaly-based IDS system based on an enhanced windowing method to carry out the collection and analysis of selected crosslayer features. The authors evaluate their proposal in a simulation framework and the experimental results show a considerable enhancement in detection results when compared with other approaches in the literature. Third, a real deployment of the IDS is also considered by suggesting a methodology for the collection of the selected features in a distributed manner.
Q2. What future works have the authors mentioned in the paper "A model of data forwarding in manets for lightweight detection of malicious packet dropping" ?
Different schemes can be analyzed for that, e. g., obtaining an average of previous AC CE PT ED M AN US CR IP T threshold values, computing the threshold as a function of the mobility speed, etc. • Finally, the authors are planning to extend their approach to include an attack model where several nodes work in collusion to evade the detection process.
