MANET is self-configuring infrastructureless wireless network. It means that any node can enter in the network at any time and can left the network at any time. In MANET, for packet delivery, each node has to communicate with other node to establish a route and each node has to maintain a routing table which provides a fresh route from source node to destination node. MANET faces a flooding attack whose purpose is to drain off scarce resources in other MANET node such as battery power and routing table by flooding a specific node with RREQ messages or false routing information.
