Wireless ad hoc network is a collection of wireless mobile nodes that dynamically self-organize in arbitrary and temporary network topologies. As compared to conventional network, wireless ad hoc network are more vulnerable to the security attacks. The nature and structure of wireless ad hoc network makes it very attractive to attackers, because there is no fixed infrastructure and administrative approach in it. "Sinkhole attack" is one of the severe attacks in this type of network; this makes

To overcome the problems occur due to sinkhole we discuss about Security-aware routing (SAR) which helps to reduce the impact of such attack.
