Co-Operative IDS Architectures for MANETs - A Survey
There are many IDSs (Intrusion Detection Systems) which are working on wired networks, but for MANETs, users do not find any single application that can be applied directly. Different characteristics of MANET make the conventional IDSs ineffective and inefficient for the wireless environment. MANET is a combination of nodes with limited power, bandwidth and processing capability. In MANETs, an intrusion detection task performed by a single node reduces power level drastically in no time. Because of power constraints, the authors have to distribute the task among several nodes so that they can uphold the power level of legitimated nodes.
