Vol. 15  No. 3  pp. 69-72


A MANET is an infrastructure-less type network, which consists of number of mobile nodes with wireless network interfaces In order to make communication among nodes, the nodes dynamically establish paths among one another. Security is an essential service for wired and wireless network communications. The success of mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) strongly depends on people’s confidence in its security. In this paper we discuss various types of attacks on various layers under protocol stack. All these vulnerabilities attempt to affect the overall performance and throughput of the network. On the basis of the nature of attack interaction, the attacks against MANET may be classified into active and passive attacks. Attackers against a network can be classified into two groups: insider and outsider. Whereas an outsider attacker is not a legitimate user of the network, an insider attacker is an authorized node and a part of the routing mechanism on MANETs.
