Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET) is a network where nodes cooperate each other to communicate data through multi-hop nodes. It has numerous applications in the current and future networking generations. Due to the popularity of Internet of Things (IOT), where everything can be connected, there is a vital role of MANET in communicating among the IOT devices to exchange information. However providing QOS in terms of security to this network is an important issue. In this paper we investigate grayhole attack in MANET and do analysis with ns2 experimental results and show how the performance degradation of the MANET occurs due to such attack. We then propose a scheme to detect and prevent grayhole attacks in various scenarios. We propose a secure routing frame work based on elliptic curve cryptography digital signature algorithm (ECDSA) which can prevent and detect the grayhole attack with improved performance. We take (Ad-hoc On Demand Distance Vector routing) AODV protocol for implementing our scheme and evaluating performance taking various performance metrics such as packet delivery ratio, end to end delay, throughput and routing overhead to show that our scheme resolve the grayhole attack with better performance.
