Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANETs) is an emerging area with practical applications. One such field concerns MANET in which mobile nodes organize themselves in a network without the help of any predefined infrastructure. Securing MANETs is an important part of deploying and utilizing them, since them are often used in critical applications where data and communications integrity in important. Existing solutions for wireless networks can be used to obtain a certain level of such security. Nevertheless, these solutions may not always be sufficient, as ad-hoc networks have their own vulnerabilities that cannot be addressed by these solutions.
