ABSTRACT
In Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANET), security is a challenging issue due to the vulnerabilities that are associated with it. Intrusion detection is therefore incorporated as a second line of defense in addition to key based authentication schemes. The range of attacks that can be mounted on MANETs are also wider than in case of conventional static networks. In mobile wireless networks there is no infrastructure as such and so it becomes even more difficult to efficiently detect malicious activities by the nodes inside and outside the network. As a matter of fact, the boundary of the network is not properly defined. Nodes can intermittently come into the network or leave it. Moreover malicious nodes can flood the network with junk packets hampering the network service or intentionally drop packets. But these nodes can subtly manipulate their harmful activities in such a manner that it becomes difficult to declare a node as malicious. On top of that these nodes can cooperate among themselves to fool the other nodes to judge an innocent node as malicious. In this paper, we combine a proactive and a reactive approach to take care of some of the problems relevant to MANETs.
