In Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANET), Artificial Intelligence (AI) based Distributed Intrusion Detection System (DIDS) techniques are very rarely available. In general, these techniques are used for either detection or authentication process. In this paper, the authors propose a combined approach named as fuzzy based intrusion detection and swarm based authenticated routing in MANET. This technique involves the detection of attacker level of the nodes in the network layers such as MAC layer, physical layer and routing layer using fuzzy logic technique.
