Security Threats in Mobile Ad hoc Network: A Review

A Mobile Ad Hoc NETwork (MANET) is a self-organizing, infrastructure less, multi-hop network. The wireless nature of MANET gives the security to the designers, although security problems in MANETs give more attention but in last some days researchers have find out many types of attacks and system security, which means how to give security to the system. Some fundamental characteristic are there such as open medium, dynamic topology, dynamic medium lead to the vulnerabilities. Whenever there is need to find the shortest path, the routing protocol does not give the shortest path but also give the path where the authors can travel fast. The routing Protocol which gives the shortest path it gives more collisions and delay in between.
