The ad-hoc networks include wireless hosts which can be mobile, too. Necessarily, it doesn't be used any prefabricated structure in these networks. It means that there is no substructure such as central station, router, switch and/or any other things which are used in network structure. There are only several wireless nodes which connect non-neighbor nodes using adjacent nodes. Security in ad-hoc networks is of high particular importance. As there are not only a lot of problems in wired networks but also security problems such as easy listening and change the information being transferred, the possibility of identity theft, lack of participation and/or destroying routing operations, inability to use encrypted key distribution infrastructures and so on are available problems.
