The dynamic changing nature of network topology makes any node in MANET to leave and join the network at any point of time. There are many routing protocols that establish the routes between the nodes in the network. The control towards the management of the nodes in the MANET is distributed. This feature does not give assurance towards the security aspects of the network. There are many routing attacks caused due to lack of security. The routing attack addressed in this paper is the black hole attack.
