A purely wireless network wherein each device itself acts as a node and also performs the task of router is called as Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET). A MANET has become a need of today's fastest developing era. A measure issue in MANET is security as it is an autonomous system of nodes which has no fixed infrastructure and also, due to continuous movement of mobile nodes it has dynamic topology so it is difficult to maintain security. In the authors' proposed system a cluster with dual head will be used in cooperative IDS for anomaly detection system.
