Ad-hoc networks are a special kind of wireless network mode. Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) are self-organizing networks that do not require a fixed infrastructure. All nodes of MANETs are mobile hosts with similar transmission power and computation capabilities. The feature having no fixed infrastructure makes MANETs to exhibit two antagonistic characteristics. For instance, this feature popularize MANETs to be deployed at some place where wired networks are impossible to be laid down on one hand, this feature also renders MANETs in jeopardies that attackers can easily break-in on other hand.
