Recent wireless research indicates that wireless Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) present a larger security problem than conventional wired and wireless networks. Wireless mobile ad hoc networks are particularly vulnerable due to their fundamental characteristics such as an open medium, dynamic topology, distributed cooperation, and constrained capability. Location information of nodes can be critical in wireless ad hoc networks, especially in those deployed for military purposes. In this paper, the authors present study of various method of receiver location privacy in mobile ad hoc network.
