A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a collection of mobile nodes communicating in a multi hop way without any fixed infrastructure such as access points or base stations. Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks have several advantages over the traditional wired networks, on the other sides they have a unique set of challenges like MANETs face challenges in secure communication, mobile nodes without adequate protection are easy to compromise, static configuration may not be adequate for the dynamically changing topology in terms of security solution and finally, lack of cooperation and constrained capability is common in MANET. MANET has not well specified defense mechanism, so malicious attacker can easily access this kind of network.
