A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is an infrastructure-less network with self-configuring capability of mobile nodes connected wirelessly. In mobile ad hoc network, some nodes may selfishly decide only to cooperate partially, or not at all, with other nodes. These selfish nodes could then reduce the overall data accessibility in the network along with an increase in query delay. In the past, many people have worked on this selfish node problem, and proposed several methods to detect these selfish nodes. This paper provides a survey on different methods used to detect selfish nodes in MANETs. It also provides an overview on data replication in a mobile adhoc network, andcertain methods to handle selfishness occurring in this replica allocation process. It is being proposed to use a combined credit risk and collaborative watchdog method to improve the network performance by detecting such selfish nodes within a reduced time period.
