Wireless Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) which is an emerging technology that has a great potency to be applied in commercial applications and battlefields. MANET is infrastructure less and each node contains routing capability with no centralized control. Each device in a MANET is independent to move and it can alter its connections frequently. So the major challenge in MANET is security, because it does not have a centralized control. Ad hoc network also contains sensor network, so it also faces the problem faced by sensor networks.
