MANET stands for Mobile Ad hoc Network. It is a decentralized autonomous wireless system which consists of free nodes. MANET sometimes called mobile mesh network is a self configurable wireless network. A MANET consists of mobile nodes, a router with multiple hosts and wireless communication devices. The ability of self Configuration of these nodes makes them more appropriate for urgently required network connection. For example in disaster hit areas where there is no communication infrastructure. It is wholly desired to have a swift communication infrastructure. MANET is the swift remedy for any disaster situation. A range of literature relating to the field of MANET routing was identified and reviewed, It is also reviewed literature on the topic of securing AODV and DSR based MANETs as this may be the most popular MANET protocol. The literature review identified a number of trends within research papers such as elite use of the random waypoint mobility model, excluding key metrics from simulation results and not comparing protocol performance against available alternatives.
