A Mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) is research area with practical applications. The reason behind the fame of MANET is flexibility and independence of network infrastructure. MANET have some inimitable characteristic like dynamic network topology, limited power and limited bandwidth for communication. MANET has more challenge compare to any other conservative network. Routing plays an important role in the security of the whole network. The most common routing protocols used in ad-hoc network are AODV (ad-hoc on demand distance vector) protocol. AODV protocol is susceptible by “Black Hole” attack. In black hole attack a malicious node advertise itself as have the shortest path to the destination node. In this paper we study the routing security issue of MANET and analyze in detail one type of attack the “Black hole” attack. We also present a detailed list of solutions which protect the black hole in MANET’s.
