This paper presents a new framework for securing mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). The framework attempts to motivate some human immune features and properties to build a robust security system. The human immune system (HIS) is a compound of molecules, cells, and organs which has established to perform several defensive tasks. New computational techniques are being developed based on the immune system concepts, seeking to solve several engineering problems. On the other hand, mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) have no clear line of defense and not fixed infrastructure; therefore, the known security techniques used for cabled networks might not work perfectly. A security framework based on immune inspired properties and features are presented. A mobile agent system has been used to map different immune components and properties. Distributed detection, first response, second response, self recovery, adaptability, and danger theory are the hallmarks of the proposed security architecture.
