Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is collections of wireless mobile devices with restricted broadcast range and resources and communication is achieved by relaying data along appropriate routes that are dynamically discovered and maintained through collaboration between the nodes. MANET is a self-configuring, dynamic, multi hop radio network without any fixed infrastructure. The main challenge in the design of such networks is how to provide security for the information which is communicated through the network. Biometrics provides possible solutions for this problem in MANET since it has the direct connection with user identity and needs little user interruption.
