Security is a critical and significant issue when implementing Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANET). Due to the unique nature, such as
dynamic topology, limited bandwidth and limited battery power pose both challenges and opportunities in achieving security requirements such
as confidentiality, authenticity, integrity, availability and non-repudiation. Various kinds of attacks affect the functionality of different layers in
ad hoc networks. There is a kind of harmful attack called Denial-of-Service (DoS) attack that exhibit in multiple forms across different layers of
protocol stack. There are numerous mechanism have been designed based on cryptographic primitives and Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS)
against DoS attack. This paper provides a survey on DoS attacks and countermeasures in MANET.
