Intrusions can be imposed from different directions on network environments. Particularly on Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs), it is more frequent as the nature of this network is exposed it to be attacked. This happens due to the lack of defined infrastructures i.e. uses wireless media and it has no defined perimeters and the communication medium used is not trusted; the mobility of the nodes can create additional problems on management of the topology of the network. These properties of MANET increased its susceptibility to intrusions. To address these problems there are several approaches proposed by different researchers.
