MANETs find their use particularly in the field where infrastructured network are not possible without having any centralized administration. Where this feature helps in rapidly deploying and establishing the ad Hoc networks, it makes it highly susceptible for attacks. Mobile adhoc networks (MANETs) rely on cooperation of all participating nodes. Any node under attack in ad hoc network exhibits an anomalous behavior called the malicious behavior. In this situation, the entire operation of a network gets disturbed and to preclude such malicious behavior several security solutions have been discovered. In this paper, malicious behavior of a node is defined and to defend such behavior, security solutions are presented which are used in furnishing a secure and reliable communication in ad hoc.
