Mobile Adhoc Network (MANET) is highly vulnerable to malicious attacks due to infrastructure less network environment, be deficient in centralized authorization. The fact that security is a critical problem when implementing mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) is widely acknowledged. One of the different kinds of misbehavior a node may exhibit is selfishness. Routing protocol plays a crucial role for effective communication between mobile nodes and operates on the basic assumption that nodes are fully cooperative. Because of open structure and limited battery-based energy some nodes (i.e. selfish or malicious) may not cooperate correctly. There can be two types of selfish attacks -selfish node attack (saving own resources) and sleep deprivation (exhaust others' resources. In this paper, we propose a new Mobile Agent Based Intrusion Detection System (IDS). The approach uses a set of Mobile Agent (MA) that can move from one node to another node within a network. This as a whole reduces network bandwidth consumption by moving the computation for data analysis to the location of the intrusion. Besides, it has been established that the proposed method also decreases the computation overhead in each node in the network. © 2011 Springer-Verlag.
