Intrusion Detection Techniques in MANET | Original Article
The mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) is a new wireless technology, having features like dynamic topology and self-configuring ability of nodes. The self configuring ability of nodes in MANET made it popular among the critical situation such as military use and emergency recovery. But due to open medium and broad distribution of nodes make MANET vulnerable to different attacks. So to protect MANET from various attacks, it is important to develop an efficient and secure system for MANET. Intrusion means any set of actions that attempt to compromise the integrity, confidentiality, or availability of a resource. Intrusion Prevention is the primary defense because it is the first step to make the systems secure from attacks by using passwords, biometrics etc. Even if intrusion prevention methods are used, the system may be subjected to some vulnerability. So we need a second wall of defense known as Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs), to detect and produce responses whenever necessary. In this paper we present a survey of various intrusion detection schemes available for ad hoc networks.
