Abstract: Security is a main concern in any network communication. Because of MANETs special characteristics, it becomes vulnerable to security attacks. MANET has no fixed infrastructure and any centralized system. It has a dynamic topology which randomly changes itself. There are different kinds of security attacks in MANETs. In this we have discussed an attack known as Black Hole attack. In MANETs, AODV is the commonly used routing algorithm, in which black hole attack can easily take place. Black hole attack takes advantage of route discovery process in it and provide wrong route to the source node in MANETs. Many researchers have given different solutions for preventing and detecting this attack. We have discussed some of the proposed solutions in this survey.
Keywords: AODV, Manet, Collaborative black hole attack, Single black hole attack.
