Effect Man-In the Middle on the Network Performance in Various Attack Strategies


Iyas Alodat, Jerash University, Jordan


In this paper, we examined the effect on network performance of the various strategies an attacker could adopt to launch Man-In The Middle (MITM) attacks on the wireless network, such as fleet or random strategies. In particular, we're focusing on some of those goals for MITM attackers - message delay, message dropping. According to simulation data, these attacks have a significant effect on legitimate nodes in the network, causing vast amounts of infected packets, end-to-end delays, and significant packet loss.
