Current technologies and security advances have made networks systems and applications very popular and widely used. The pervasive and practical aspects of wireless Mobile Ad Hoc NETworks (MANET) made them very popular as well. This created the need for securing MANET's to provide users with authentic communications, secure, and robust information exchange and efficient security mechanisms .However, many of the security solutions devised for regular networks are not as efficient nor as effective on MANET's. This paper investigates the security issues of MANET's as well as surveys some available techniques to secure it.
