Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a multi-hop network, self-organizing, infrastructure less. Due to the absence of any fixed infrastructure, it becomes difficult to make use of the existing routing techniques for network services, and this wireless and distributed nature of MANETs poses a number of challenges to system security designers in ensuring the security of the communication. In this paper, security issues and their current solutions in ad hoc network have been discussed. The authors have discussed and analyzed the main vulnerabilities in MANET which have made it much easier to suffer from attacks.
