Most of the research in MANETS has been focused on Routing issues. Security on the other hand has been given low priority. This paper provides an introduction to Mobile Adhoc Networks, Routing related issues and overview of security problems for MANETS, by distinguishing the threats on the basic mechanisms and securitymechanisms. It then addresses the possible solution to protect the security mechanism, which involves availability, integrity, authentication and non repudiation. These securities related issues are well addressed if one can provide methods that are pertinent for authentication, key distribution, and intrusion detection andrerouting in case of Byzantine failure in MANETS.
