Objective: To improve IDS strategy with high detection accuracy and reduce the power consumption of the nodes in MANET. Methods: There are several intrusion detection systems are developed. In order to increase the performance of IDS, Bayesian Correlated Equilibrium based IDS which incorporates two main processes namely, Cluster Head selection and Hybrid IDS for MANET is proposed. The game theory is also used to increase the detection accuracy of IDS. Findings: Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET) is an autonomous system that consists of battery powered mobile nodes. MANETs are prone to several attacks as they are continuously self configuring and infrastructure less. As the nodes are mobile, they are susceptible to intrusions. The Intrusion Detection System has issues of heavy traffic related to IDS in the network, which causes congestion. It also leads to high energy consumption among the nodes. So designing an efficient MANET should have certain number of goals such as effective intrusion detection, light traffic and low energy consumption and power loss. Many Intrusion detection schemes were proposed that normally incurs power loss in the node as there is a need for continuous monitoring. Application/Improvements: To increase detection accuracy, decrease power consumption and the IDS traffic Bayesian Correlated Equilibrium based IDS for MANET is presented.
