The performance evaluation have their place in wireless network research, the current and future applications of the ad hoc networks have forced the research community to look at dependability and security aspects as eavesdropping and jamming. Security is a basic and paramount requirement for an ad hoc network because of its intrinsic vulnerabilities in order for users to perform protected peer-to-peer communication over multi-hop wireless channel. Depending on the application context, a user may desire various security services such as authentication, integrity, non-repudiation, Confidentiality, Key and Trust Management and access control.
