Abstract

The inherent openness of wireless communication techniques has made them vulnerable to jamming attacks. However, the effectiveness of a jamming attack depends on numerous parameters and varies according to the state of the environment. At the same time, attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated and attempt to evade basic detection methods. Consequently, there is a real need to evaluate this new type of attack to improve the robustness of the detection and mitigation methods. A simulating tool to assess the impact of jamming attacks on wireless networks has become essential to gain effectiveness against attackers. This paper proposes a module of jamming attack for the discrete network simulator 3 (ns-3). This module, adaptable to any type of jamming attack strategy, provides a set of essential metrics allowing their evaluation. We evaluate the module by comparing the impacts of different types of jamming attacks already carried out in a real environment. CCS CONCEPTS • Networks → Network simulations; • Security and privacy → Denial-of-service attacks.
