      Mobile ad-hoc network is a group of two or more devices or nodes with the capability of communication and networking. It is an infrastructure less network. Such network may operate by them or may be connected to a larger internet. Due to its mobility and self routing capability nature, there are many weaknesses in its security. The security of the network from various attacks is an important issue in MANET application now days. Due to the dynamically changing topology, open environment and lack of centralized security infrastructure, a mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is vulnerable to many attacks. This paper focuses on mobile ad hoc network`s routing vulnerability and analyzes the network performance under Distributed Denial of Service MANETS. The resistive schemes against these attacks were proposed for Ad hoc on demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol and the effectiveness of the schemes is validated using NS2 simulations.
