A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a collection of mobile nodes (hosts) which communicate with each other via wireless links either directly or indirectly depending on other nodes. As the nodes in MANETs are free to move randomly, network topology of a MANETs may change rapidly and unpredictably. Due to the dynamic change in topology finding route is very difficult. In MANETs performing network function consumes energy and other resources so some nodes may misbehaves.
