Comparative Study of Security Protocols in MANETs

Ad hoc wireless networking is a new approach to wireless communication with potential applications in very unpredictable and dynamic environments. In contrast to wired and cellular networks, an ad hoc wireless network does not depend on any established infrastructure or centralized administration such as a base station. Therefore, its network topology is dynamic in nature and may change rapidly and unpredictably. The security of ad hoc wireless networks is becoming an increasingly complex issue. A common type of attacks targets at the underlying routing protocols.
