Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) security has become the focus of prolific research efforts. Driven by the unique and considerable difficulties of providing security arising from the dynamic nature of MANETs, many security schemes have been proposed. Rather than trying to encompass the entire field of MANET security, this paper focuses on networks using the popular Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) protocol and a secure extension to AODV, the Secure AODV (SAODV) protocol. SAODV is representative of a number of secure versions of the AODV protocol in that it relies upon the use of cryptographic mechanisms protect the routing control messages of AODV from being forged and/or altered by attackers.
