In this paper, we discuss security issues and their current solutions in the mobile ad hoc network. Owe to the vulnerable nature of the mobile ad hoc network, there are numerous security threats that disturb the development of it. We first analyze the main vulnerabilities in the mobile ad hoc networks, which have made it much easier to suffer from attacks than the traditional wired network. Then we discuss the security criteria of the mobile ad hoc network and present the main attack types that…

Attacks against mobile ad hoc networks routing protocol
TLDR
It is identified that most of the attacks against ad hoc networks routing protocols are actually launched by exploiting the routing messages, and further classify them based upon the techniques that could be used to exploit routing messages in Section IV.

Security in mobile ad hoc networks: challenges and solutions
TLDR
The security issues related to this problem are identified, the challenges to security design are discussed, and the state-of-the-art security proposals that protect the MANET link- and network-layer operations of delivering packets over the multihop wireless channel are reviewed.
A secure routing protocol for ad hoc networks
TLDR
This work details security threats against ad hoc routing protocols, specifically examining AODV and DSR, and proposes a solution to one, the managed-open scenario where no network infrastructure is pre-deployed, but a small amount of prior security coordination is expected.
Securing ad hoc networks
TLDR
This article takes advantage of the inherent redundancy in ad hoc networks-multiple routes between nodes-to defend routing against denial-of-service attacks and uses replication and new cryptographic schemes to build a highly secure and highly available key management service, which terms the core of this security framework.
Adding Security against Packet Dropping Attack in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
TLDR
A two folded approach will detect the misbehavior of nodes and will identify the malicious activity in network, and then upon identification of nodes misbehavior in network other approach will isolate the malicious node from network.
Black hole attack in mobile Ad Hoc networks
TLDR
Computer simulation shows that compared to the original ad hoc on-demand distance vector (AODV) routing scheme, the second solution can verify 75% to 98% of the route to the destination depending on the pause times at a minimum cost of the delay in the networks.
Security in Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks
TLDR
Both prevention and detection methods will work together to address the security concerns in MANET and present a few promising research directions.
