Security Issues in ADHOC Networks – A Survey
An ad hoc network is a wireless networking paradigm for the mobile host. It is made together with separate devices
for communicating with each other directly. Mobile users will want to communicate in a secure way where no fixed wired
infrastructure is available. Security is one of the most important issues in ad hoc network for security-sensitive applications.
Although there are different advantages over the networks, still there are various security problems which affect the networks
in several ways. Different research has been done in recognizing and resolving the issues in the networks. This paper surveys
different approaches to provide safety and secure communication in Mobile Adhoc networks. We have discussed the
difference between each mentioned Ad hoc networks with its strength and weakness while providing the secure
communications through networks wireless topology.
