Several studies in the literature have been addressed by the researchers to solve security dilemmas of Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs). Due to the wireless nature of the channel and specific characteristics of MANETs, the radio interference attacks cannot be mitigated through conventional security mechanisms. These attacks cause a significant degradation on overall network throughput, packet transmission rates and delay on the MAC layer since other nodes step back from the communication. A malicious node can continually transmit a radio signal in order to block any type of legitimate access to the medium and/or infer with reception.
