Security aspects play an important role in almost all of the application scenarios given the vulnerabilities inherent in wireless ad hoc networking from the very fact that radio communication takes place (e.g. in tactical applications) to routing, man-in-the-middle and elaborate data injection attacks. Security has become a primary concern in order to provide protected communication between mobile nodes in a hostile environment. It is vital to protect the network from different kinds of security threats. This paper proposes a security solution for MANETs using a pre-existing routing protocol, Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector routing (AODV).
