Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) are an infrastructure less, self configuring network. These networks can be setup easily anywhere and anytime without any base infrastructure, thus they have proved to be very efficient is rescue related areas like flood and fire. MANETs are now extended to be used in military and law enforcement. MANETs still face the major problem of security and privacy, especially when used in sensitive areas of computing. Secure routing protocols have been developed to provide various levels of security and privacy in the past.
