MANET can be viewed as collection of wireless mobile nodes that forms a short-lived network without any fixed infrastructure. In this network, all the nodes configure themselves and are free to move about arbitrarily. The dilemma is that how should it be judged whether the MANET is secure or not. MANET is accessible to legitimate as well as non-legitimate network users. Secured routing over such kind of network is a very critical task due to highly dynamic environment. In this research paper, a new Intrusion Detection protocol has been proposed for secured routing over MANET. An experimental analysis of proposed protocol has been carried using network simulator. Based on the experimental analysis, recommendations have been made about the significance of protocol under various situations.
