Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) are wireless networks consisted of mobile free nodes that can move anywhere at any time without the need to any fixed infrastructure or any centralized administration. In this category of networks existing nodes must rely on each other to play the role of routers or switches instead of using central ones. The self-organized nature of such environments made MANETs vulnerable against many security threats. As a result, providing security requirements in MANETs is one of the most interesting challenges in such a network.
