A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is repeatedly self constructing and infrastructure less network, having mobile nodes (MNs) connected to each other wirelessly. One of the most prevalent routing protocols used in MANET is Ad hoc on demand distance vector (AODV). The problem with AODV is its vulnerability to several attacks. The most devastating attack in AODV is black hole attack. In this paper, a strategy for detection of Black Hole (BH) attack is proposed which leads to preservation of energy due to negligible control packet overhead. The performance of proposed strategy is compared with the existing techniques and the results depict that the proposed strategy effectively detect and prevent the BH attack in MANET while preserving the energy.
