The dynamic nature of infrastructure in MANET makes security as a critical issue. The security of the network can be improved by preventing the black hole attack in MANET by enhancing the data confidentiality and reliability. One of the way to achieve this is to protect the messages from being compromised when they are delivered over the insecure network. This paper focuses on protecting the data from compromised nodes by dividing the data in to multiple shares. Each message is encoded by a public key and then transferred over multiple paths. Destination receiving the multiple shares will integrate into original message.
