The lack of static infrastructure causes several issues in mobile Ad Hoc network, such as energy utilization, node authentication and secure routing. In this paper, the authors propose a new scheme for energy efficient secure routing of data packets in MANET. This approach will reduce the computational overhead to make it more energy efficient than existing schemes. As there is no stationary infrastructure, each node in MANET acts a router that forwards data packets to other nodes. Therefore selection of effective, suitable, adaptive and robust routing scheme is of utmost importance. They have reduced the amount of network activity for each node required to route a data packet.
