MANETs are wireless networks which communicate without BS and centralized control nodes. Due to its mobile nature of nodes, topology of the network changes frequently. So it is most difficult to stimulate this network. The main task is to provide an efficient and effective routing in MANETs with limited resources. As MANET is an open medium, it is open to numerous attacks by the attackers. To avoid attacks, a good intrusion detection and prevention system is developed. This paper gives a brief survey about different IDS developed to protect attacks in MANET have been briefed. To strengthen the security of IDS, we propose a hidden Markova model-based IDS for MANET for preventing network from attacks. HMM implements learning on the nodes of the network. Based on this learning, the results show the best possible positions and probability of the attacker node.
