Ad hoc networks are a new wireless paradigm for mobile hosts. Unlike traditional mobile ad hoc networks, ad hoc do not rely on any fixed infrastructure. The mobile ad hoc networks suffer from security attacks and privacy issues which dramatically impede their applications. To cope with the attacks, a large variety of intrusion detection techniques such as authentication, authorization, cryptographic protocols and key management schemes have been developed. A mobile node would be capable of moving to a particular position to establish network connectivity, provided it knows its current position and positions of other mobile node.
