This paper proposes a novel Energy Efficient Authentic Reliable Routing Protocol (EEARRP) to attain better authenticity in scalable mobile ad hoc networks. To decrease the signature verification expenditure and message communication expenditure a mechanism with message recovery is employed. The proposed authentic scheme is to minimize the size of the message transmitted when the signature length is reduced any more. To implement this, the energy efficient authentic reliable routing scheme with message recovery is used. Therefore, the communication overhead is minimized guaranteed in the above said scheme. The total length of the broadcast message is reduced by 24%. As a result, the total energy consumption of the authors' scheme can be reduced by up to 27%.
