As the nodes in MANET are battery limited, one node per cluster is elected as leader to run IDS for all the nodes in the cluster. Leader is elected based on the residual energy of each node that is sufficient to run IDS. Too much of resources are wasted for the implementation of intrusion detection scheme for every node. Hence nodes are grouped into cluster and cluster head is elect to serve other node in network, where as selfish node with maximum resources are not nominated for cluster head selection, because of self interest to save its own power.
