Mobile ad hoc networks eliminate the need for pre-existing infrastructure by relying on the nodes to carry all network activities. The mobile ad hoc networks are more prone to suffer from malicious behaviors than the traditional wired networks. Therefore, there is a need to pay more attention to the security issues in the mobile ad hoc networks. Clustered MANETs is a very promising area of research due to its infrastructure less capability. They have many advantages such as improved bandwidth, power consumption and QoS of the network but one disadvantage is security.
