Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANET) are the extension of the wireless networks. They plays significant role in real life applications such as military applications, home applications etc. these networks are threatened by a lot of security attacks such as Modification, Denial of service attack, Fabrication attack etc. Black hole attack (also called Selfish node attack) is a dangerous active attack on the Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANET). In this research paper an efficient approach for the detection and removal of the Black hole attack in the Mobile Ad Hoc NETworks (MANET) is described. The algorithm is implemented on AODV (Ad hoc on demand Distance Vector) Routing protocol.
