In wired networks; we have firewalls and secured gateways as protection mechanism for secure communication. In case of wireless Mobile Ad-hoc networks (MANET), the nodes are self-organizing, infrastructure less, dynamic topology and no centralized authority. Each mobile node is free to move independently in any direction and changes its link to other devices frequently. In this paper, we discuss various vulnerabilities, applications, advantages, and routing protocols in MANET.
