Hostile MANETs are significant because of their applications in military and law enforcement area where the identity of the nodes cannot be revealed since there is a risk of tracing and locating them with their identities, which makes the network vulnerable to attacks. Therefore communication between nodes should be performed with the help of location information which mitigates the risk of exposure. Security and privacy in location based communication within suspicious MANETs can be enforced using the group signature scheme along with the ALARM protocol which can provide authentication of nodes, data integrity and intractability but lacks scalability due to excessive broadcasting of link state information.
