A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a dynamic wireless network that can be formulated without the need for any pre-existing infrastructure in which each node can act as a router. One of the main challenges of MANET is the design of robust routing protocol that adapt to the frequent and randomly changing network topology. A variety of routing protocols have been proposed and most of them have been extensively simulated or implemented as well. Several attacks are possible in the available routing protocols such as wormhole attack, black hole attack, byzantine attack, etc.
