The mobile nodes in MANETs dynamically change their topology and hence require an efficient mechanism to communicate with each other. There are several routing protocols proposed for MANET environment categorized as Non-Location Based routing protocols and Location Based routing protocols. Among all routing protocols the Location based routing protocols are preferred in MANET as they are more efficient in routing compared with the non-location based routing protocols. Also the MANET is vulnerable to several kind of attack such as black hole attack, wormhole attack, Sybil attack, flooding attack, gray hole attack etc.
