Mobile ad-hoc network is self-configured network that consist of mobile nodes which communicate with each other. Distributed self-organized nature of this network makes it venerable to various attacks likes DOS attack, black hole attack, wormhole attack, jamming attack, etc. Blackhole attack is one of the serious attack in network in which information loss occur which degrades the performance of network. In this paper, black hole attack is detected with the help of CBDS (Co-operative Bait Detection Scheme algorithm) and MD5 is used for the security purpose.
