Due to the nature of wireless media, dynamic network topology, resource constraints, and lack of any base station or access point, security in ad-hoc networks is more challenging than with cabled networks. In this chapter, we discuss various attacks on the network layer of ad-hoc networks. We also review security protocols that protect network layer operations from various attacks.
