A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is the network of self-configuring nodes without having any fixed infrastructure. In mobile ad hoc network all the node have limited battery & lifetime in the network. There is many routing protocols are based on assumption that every node forward packets to other node but some nodes are misbehave or non-cooperative which is known as selfish node. In this paper, the authors discussed about the different IDS technique to detect the selfish node in mobile ad hoc network. Here, they proposed a credit based technique to detect the selfish node attack & motivate them to co-operate in the network.
