In the last few years, the authors have seen the fast development of wireless communication technologies and a Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork play a major role for wireless communication. A MANET is a self-determining collection of mobile nodes that communicate over comparatively bandwidth constrained wireless mediums. Since the nodes are mobile, the network topology may change rapidly and impulsively over time. Many critical applications are using the Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork; therefore, security issue has become one of the major concerns in MANETs. Due to some unique features and characteristics of MANETs, prevention methods alone are not sufficient to make them secure; therefore, detection should be added as another defense before an attacker can break the system.
