Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is most commonly used due to its advantages over wired and other wireless networks. Since MANET does not require special infrastructure it is used very commonly in military application and areas where there is no possibility of creating instant infrastructure such as earthquake and flooding affected regions. Due to dynamic topology, no centralized control over network and cooperative protocols security is major area of concern in MANET. MANET is susceptible for various attacks such as black hole, grey hole, tunneling attack etc., which compromises on security goals such as data integrity, confidentiality and availability.
