Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) are the instantly created autonomous wireless networks, in which nodes in the network could organize themselves rapidly, in order to communicate with each other. They do not require any fixed infrastructure unlike their conventional counterparts. In the recent past, MANETs has gained much of its attraction due to its unique features such as nomadic nature, dynamicity and also due to its ease in deployment. However, the wireless and dynamic topological natures render them various types of security threats than their wired counterparts.
