A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is an independent system of mobile stations connected by wireless connection to form a network. Intrusion detection has, over the last few years, assumed principal importance within the broad area of network security. Wireless ad hoc networks have been in focus within the wireless research community. Essentially, these are networks that do not have an essential fixed infrastructure. Mobile hosts “join” on the fly and create a network on their own. With the network topology changing dynamically and the lack of a centralized network management functionality, these networks tend to be vulnerable to a number of attacks.
This paper presents a brief survey of current research in Intrusion detection for wireless ad-hoc networks. To support these ideas, a discussion regarding attacks, and intrusion detection architectures that deployed for wireless ad-hoc network infrastructures.
