Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) are fundamentally different from their wired-side counterparts. MANETs provide no fixed infrastructure, base stations or switching centers. So there is no security to protect the nodes in the network. Each and every nodes act as a sender and receiver. Each node helps each other to perform network functions in a self organization way. However, some nodes in a network may oppose to cooperating with others to avoid consuming their battery power and other resources.
