Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a dynamic infrastructure-less network with a lack of centralized management. MANET is a collection of mobile nodes which is formed mechanically where nodes exchange packets to allow communication among nodes hop-by-hop which are outside the wireless transmission range. Due to this ad hoc networks are vulnerable to attacks those influence network performance and reliability. Entire network may collapse without security feature in routing protocols. Currently, numerous routing protocols have been proposed for MANET.
