A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a latest and emerging Research topic among researchers. The reason behind the popularity of MANET is flexibility and independence of network infrastructure. MANET have some unique characteristic like dynamic network topology, limited power and limited bandwidth for communication. MANET has more challenge compare to any other conventional network. The most common routing protocols used in ad-hoc network are AODV (Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector) protocol. AODV protocol is threatened by \"Black hole\" attack.
