Abstract: -In recent years, security has been the most focused area in ad Hoc networks research. Wireless ad hoc networks will be widely used in the near future since these networks form the topology with low cost. Mobile nodes contributes vital role in wireless networks. However consumer electronic devices (mobile nodes) operate under limited energy and battery power and could be vulnerable to security threats easily such as data flooding attacks. Especially while downloading multimedia data flooding attack can be lead to complete disruption of service (denial of service) due to which performance and quality of service may degrade though they follow different routing trusted protocols. We propose a periodic based defense mechanism against denial of service attack to control data packet floods released by an attacker with the aim of enhancing the throughput. After Simulating, outcome shows that the planned scheme enhances the throughput of burst traffic and quality of device. Key words: denial of service attack, data flooding attack, Ad Hoc Networks
