Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) are the collection of mobile devices (nodes) which on a shared wireless medium communicate with each other even in the absence of predefined infrastructure. Security in MANETs is a challenging issue. The characteristics of this networks are such that they are inevitable to the attacks, one of such attack is Sybil attack where an attacker subverts a reputation system by creating forge identities, in this paper, the authors are studying about Sybil attacks and its various forms alongside this they are also detailing about the solutions proposed or implemented to detect or prevent such attacks.
