Mobile ad hoc networks are infrastructure less, pervasive, dynamic, ubiquitous, open and shared medium, distributed environment and no centralized authority. These characteristics make MANET an emerging research area with practical applications. However, unlike wired networks, wireless MANET is vulnerable to security risks due to these unique and fundamental characteristics. Routing plays an important role in the security of the entire network. Early paper in the MANET has been primarily focused on developing an efficient routing mechanism, rather than securing such a highly dynamic and resource constrained network.
