The field of mobile computing can be described as both old and new. Today with the popularity of new generation mobile devices, the focus is moving towards the mobile based: user experience, next generation solutions, cloud services and infrastructure. Therefore, the authors can say that ad-hoc network is an emerging area of mobile computing. In comparison to the wired networks, mobile ad hoc networks have unique characteristics. But these features results in a number of significant threats to the security design, such as open peer-to-peer network architecture, shared wireless medium, confined resource constraints, and dynamic network topology.
