Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) are becoming increasingly popular as more and more mobile devices find their way to the public. Due to MANETs inherent characteristics, secure routing may be one of the most difficult areas to tackle because opponents can add themselves to a MANET using the existing common routing protocols. Hence, this paper proposed a new model of routing protocol called ARANz, which is an extension of the original Authenticated Routing for Ad-hoc Networks (ARAN).
