A Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) is a network built on ad hoc demand by some mobile wireless nodes geographically distributed over an area. There is no fixed infrastructure and also no centralized administration. The traditional security measures fail to provide the required security level in MANETs. Specialised detection schemes are to be employed for detecting the intruder attack in MANET. The intrusion detection systems based on mobile agents uses a set of mobile agents moving from one node to another node within a network. The distributed ID consists of multiple mobile agents which cooperate over a large network and communicate with each other. This as a whole reduces network bandwidth usage by moving data analysis computation to the location of the intrusion data & support heterogeneous platforms. In this paper, a mobile agent based IDS have been proposed to detect the black hole attack in MANET, with the aim of reducing computational complexity. © 2011 Springer-Verlag.
