Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is an emerging technology and hence is an active area of research. The ease of deployment and defined infrastructureless feature these networks find applications in a variety of scenarios ranging from emergency operation and disaster relief to military service and task force. Providing security in such scenarios is critical. Zero Knowledge Protocol (ZKP) help a prover convince a verifier that users holds some knowledge (usually secret), without leaking any information about the knowledge during verification process (zero knowledge).
