Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) is an auto Configuring network. Due to its natural characteristics, a MANET is vulnerable to many security threats. Blackhole attack compromises the performance and the reliability of the network. Since nodes are allowed to move freely within the network, it becomes very important to protect the communication among mobile nodes for the sake of security. In this paper we have investigated various techniques that can detect Blackhole attacks in MANET and we have compared the detection techniques with different matrices such as Average Packet Delivery ratio and Average End-To-End delay.
