A Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) is a collection of wireless mobile nodes forming a temporary network without using any centralized access point, infrastructure, or centralized administration. Data transmission between two nodes in MANET's may be requires multiple hops as the nodes transmission range is limited. Mobility of the different nodes makes the situation even more complicated. Multiple routing protocols, especially in these conditions have been developed during the last few years, to find optimized routes from a source to some destination.Ad-hoc network suffer from the lot of issues and congestion and security are the major issues of ongoing research, which leads to severe degradation of network throughput and increases the routing overheads. This survey gives a comprehensive overview of AODV (Ad-hoc On demand Distance Vector Routing) in the presence of black hole attack with a detailed comparison of different research on AODV has been presented. Open research direction is also discussed to serve as a starting point to future protocol design and evaluation.
