Mobile Ad hoc networks (MANETs) are new wireless networks with a self-configuring and self-maintaining network characterized as dynamic topology. This work will discuss the existing approaches that have intended to create a defense against various attacks at different layers. Routing is a very important function in MANETs, as described earlier. Making routing protocols efficient often increases the security risk of the protocol and allows a single node to significantly impact the operation of the protocol because of the lack of protocol redundancy. We focus on our scheme on authentication between the nodes and we choose the on-demand routing protocol like Ad Hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) protocol to apply this scheme to, which it depends on hash function, hash lock and random number generation and also on secret value and time stamp. This scheme is used to produce security and authentication environment between the nodes in Mobile Ad Hoc Network.
