Wireless links are more vulnerable to attacks they are considered to be "Untrusted" in terms of security, i.e. they are relatively simple to be hacked. Mobile Ad Hoc Networks have unique characteristics like rapid movement of node in infrastructure less network that's changes its topology; One can easily gain access to confidential information in such case. Also there are problems of generation, distribution and assignment of session key due to a lack of Trusted Model and distributive Certification Authority (CA) for Authentication of mobile nodes in distributed authentication environment. Hence, an Identity-Based secure communication in MANET is discussed in this paper.
