The use of Artificial Immune Systems (AIS) in intrusion detection is an attractive concept for several reasons. Then it is judicious to expect that approaches of biological inspirations in this area, and specifically the abstraction of immune defense mechanism with its high detection capabilities and its strong defense against intrusion, will probably be able to meet this challenge. Researchers have implemented different immune models to design Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) in order to secure Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANET), but the most popular one is the self and non-self model. This model was used in the vast majority of biological inspiration in the field of MANET security.
