Wireless networks are gaining popularity to its peak today, as the user's wants wireless connectivity irrespective of their geographic position. There is an increasing threat of attacks on the Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANET). Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) has become an exciting and important technology in recent years, because of the rapid proliferation of wireless devices. MANETs must have a secure way for transmission and communication which is quite challenging and vital issue. In order to provide secure communication and transmission, researcher worked specifically on the security issues in MANETs, and many secure routing protocols and security measures within the networks were proposed. Intrusion-Detection Systems aim at detecting attacks against computer systems and networks or in general, against information systems.
