Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) is a kind of wireless ad hoc network and is infrastructure-less network of mobile devices connected wirelessly. MANET consists of Peer-to-Peer, self-forming, self-healing network. Generally different routing protocols are available for MANET, the widely used protocol is Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) Protocol. These algorithms are mainly focusing on routing efficiency, resulting causes various attacks in the network. One of the major attacks is DOS attack called Node Isolation Attack in OLSR. We proposed a novel solution to prevent the DOS attack and to reduce the network overhead by minimizing the fictitious nodes in the network and also select an alternative path.
