A MANET is an infrastructure-less type network, which consists of number of mobile nodes with wireless network interfaces In order to make communication among nodes, the nodes dynamically establish paths among one another. The nature and structure of such networks makes it attractive to various types of attackers. Security is a major concern for protected communication between mobile nodes. MANET has no clear line of defense, so, it is accessible to both legitimate network users and malicious attackers.
