With the advancement in radio technologies like Bluetooth, IEEE 802.11, a new concept of networking has emerged; this is known as ad hoc networking where potential mobile users arrive within the range for communication.

Compared to wired networks, MANETs are more vulnerable to security attacks due to the lack of a trusted centralized authority and limited resources.
