Security is a key issue to ensure protected communication between mobile intersections in adversary environments. Unlike cable networks, it creates some non-leakage issues, such as the unique features of mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), secure peer-topeer network architecture, shared wireless interference, harsh resource restrictions, and high dynamic network topology. These difficulties create a hub for creating a multifunctional security solution to achieve extensive protection and performance of any network. In this article, we pay attention to the main security problem of MANET. We identify security issues with the discussed issues a security design is also discussed. A review of the latest security recommendations for MANETalong with the performance is discussed.

MANET, Routing, Security Criteria, Attacks, Security solution

Due to the dynamic infrastructure of MANET that worked without centralized management, this kind of network is more vulnerable to many attacks. In this article, we discuss the security issues and the different types of routing protocols in MANET.An attempt was made to provide an overview of a few available security attacks in MANET.This network needs to be safer and strengthened to suit the requirements of the network. In this article, research on MANET safety is still a challenge and opens the door for researchers. Also, a comparison between existing prevention techniques has been performed. From the analysis, it has been observed that when an artificial intelligence technique is used with intrusion detection system the detection rate of the network has been increased.
