Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a system of wireless mobile nodes that dynamically self-organize in arbitrary and temporary network topologies. The main purpose of an ad hoc network routing protocol is to enable the transport of data packets from one point to another. One of the main challenges in MANET is to design the robust security solution that can protect MANET from various routing attacks. The overall goal of the security solutions for MANET is to provide security services including authentication, confidentiality, integrity, anonymity, and availability to the mobile users.
