Abstract

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have grasped an important role in the modern day networking. A lot of applica-tions are being developed using aerial vehicles as a pivot. These vehicles provide a vast range of support to modern day networks. Modern computing applications such as Urban Computing, Internet of Things, Ubiquitous Computing, and the Internet for All have sought applications of UAVs to attain complex tasks. However, securing aerial vehicles in a network is not an easy task because of the difference in communication standards and range of applicability. Aerial nodes are prone to various types of attack in a network such as Sybil attack, wormhole attack, sinkhole attack, or impersonation attack. These attacks lead to a large number of vulnerabilities causing fatal incidents. A new attack is introduced in this paper termed as “Coagulation Attack”. This term is derived from the clotting properties of fluids. This paper introduces the concept, issues, challenges, and research aspects of coagulation attack. A simulation study is also presented that shows the impact of such attacks over networked UAVs.
