Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANET) are infrastructure-less networks characterized by lack of prior configuration and the hostile environments. Their unique properties make them a natural candidate for situations where unplanned network establishment is required.
However this flexibility leads to a number of security challenges. Security in MANET is a very complex job and requires considerations on the issues spanning across all the layers of communication stack. This chapter reviews the security problem in MANET. It provides an updated account of the security solutions for MANET with detailed discussions on secure routing, intrusion detection system and key management problems. The chapter is concluded with a comprehensive security solution for MANET.
