Ad hoc networks are useful when there is no infrastructure set up possible. Mobile ad hoc network provides anytime, anywhere communication. These types of networks are vulnerable to attacks. For MANET, the topology is dynamic, bandwidth is limited, power is limited and medium is open. Any unauthorized node can easily enter into the communication medium. So providing security is very hard. Various attacks possible on mobile adhoc networks includes wormhole, blackhole, jamming, grayhole, Sybil etc. Jamming attack is a form of denial of service attack in which a malicious node frequently sends route request packet and so creates traffic in the network. It jams the network. We have presented various existing methods to detect such type of attack.
