As in Manets, Dynamic topology is used; no infrastructure is there. The Ad-hoc on demand distance vector routing protocol (AODV) is outlined for mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) to handle situations like dynamic link conditions; low memory overhead and low network utilization. But Security issues are not properly concerned; it remains a challenge for wireless designers. Various solutions have been proposed to establish a secure divulgation between end users by providing the security services like authentication, confidentiality, integrity, and availability, to mobile users; these solutions identify that the secure operation of AODV is a bi tier task (i.e. Routing and Secure interchange of information at separate levels). Most of the research work has been done in ad-hoc networks to resolve the problems such as routing coping with the new challenges caused by networks’ and nodes' features without concerning the security issues into account. As security plays an increasingly important role in many systems, it is indispensable that we have a better understanding and management of computer security. We propose a framework to measure and enforce security attributes on ad hoc routing paths. The aim of this paper is to propose a Security Measurement (SM) framework includes “Computer Securityâ€; a measure for computer security; a methodology to make best estimate of the measures; apply validation on measure.
The rest of this paper is organized as follows. In Section II we will give the brief description of MANETs and IEEE802.11. Section III will introduce about the different types of routing protocols. In Section IV an overview of Attacks against AODV is given. Section IV describes security principles. In section V security issues are discussed. Security Measurement Framework is introduced in section VI. At last, we conclude with recommendation plans for future work in Section VI.
