Security in Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is the most important concern for the basic functionality of network. Availability of network services, confidentiality and integrity of the data can be achieved by assuring that security issues have been met. MANET often suffer from security attacks, because of features like open medium, changing topologies, lack of central monitoring and management of cooperative algorithms and no clear defense mechanism. Hence, the proposed review has been attempted to study the vulnerability of MANETs against security attacks and find the appropriate techniques.
