Security Issues and Its Challenges for Host Based Mobile Ad Hoc Networks to Protect Intrusion
Providing security to mobile ad hoc network is itself a great challenge for the researcher. Since mobile ad hoc network is highly vulnerable to face different attacks due to its self organizing behavior, infrastructure less architecture and multi-hop network characteristics. The strength of ad hoc network infrastructure (due to wireless and distributed nature of MANETs) also becomes the point of its greatest vulnerability. Thus decreasing the confidence level of the systems as it pertains to availability, reliability, and data integrity and privacy concern. This paper discusses some of the major security issues in terms of protocols analysis and suitability of the proposed host based intrusion detection architecture towards protecting each node from vulnerable attack.
