Design of intrusion detection and prevention scheme for improving MANET security, with considered energy efficiency, detection rate, delay, and false positive rate are major research issues. Most of the existing solutions have suffered to obtain accurate detection rate in minimal time execution and energy consumption. In this work we proposed a Smart approach for intrusion detection and prevention system (SA-IDPS) to mitigate attacks in MANET by machine learning methods. Initially, mobile users are registered in Trusted Authority using One Way Hash Chain Function. Each mobile user submits their following information to verify authentication: finger vein biometric, user id, and latitude and longitude. Intrusion detection is executed using four entities: Packet Analyzer, Preprocessing Unit, Feature Extraction Unit and Classification Unit. In packet analyzer, we verify whether any attack pattern is found or not. It is implemented using Type 2 Fuzzy Controller which considers information from packet header. In preprocessing unit, logarithmic normalization and encoding schemes are considered, which is time series and suitable for any application. In feature extraction unit, Mutual Information is used where we extracts optimum set of features for packets classification. In classification unit, Bootstrapped Optimistic Algorithm for Tree Construction with Artificial Neural Network is used for packets classification, which classifies packets five classes: DoS, Probe, U2R, R2L, and Anomaly, and then Association Rule Tree are used to classify whether the attack is Frequent or Rare. In this case, historical table is used for packets classification. Finally, experiments are conducted and tested for evaluating the performance of proposed SA-IDPS scheme in terms of Detection Rate (%), False Positive Rate (%), Detection Delay (s), and Energy Consumption (J).
