Ad hoc networks are a new wireless networking paradigm for mobile hosts. Unlike traditional mobile wireless networks, ad hoc networks do not rely on any fixed infrastructure. Instead, hosts rely on each other to keep the network connected. The military tactical and other security-sensitive operations are the main applications of adhoc networks,. Other commercial uses are also trying to adopt the usage of the adhoc networks. One main challenge in design of these networks is their vulnerability to security attacks. In this paper, we study the threats an ad hoc network faces and the security goals to be achieved. In light of this paper we have reviewed opportunities posed by this new networking environment. We have reviwed the main threats focused on Adhoc Networks, the major security features, secure routing and key management services.
