A \"Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork\" (MANET) is an autonomous system of collection of mobile routers and associated hosts which are connected by wireless links. The routers are free to move randomly and organize themselves arbitrarily, thus the network's topology may change rapidly and unpredictably. For quick data communication, the authors need a routing protocol that adapts to topology changes. In the MANET environment, any node can maliciously or selfishly disrupt and deny communication of other nodes. In MANET secure data communication is one of the vital issue. For secure data communication route finding and data communication are the two main phases.
