Anonymous communication is the important issue in case of Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs). It is very difficult to find the source and destination of the communication link and the other intermediate nodes involved in it. Many enhancement techniques are proposed to enhance the anonymous communication in case of the MANETs. However, MANETs are vulnerable under certain circumstances like passive attacks and traffic analysis attacks. Here, the authors proposed the traffic analysis model, expose some of the methods and attacks that could infer MANETs are still weak under the passive attacks.
