A Secure Dominating Set Based Routing and Key Management Scheme in Mobile Ad Hoc Network
In Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) nodes communicate with each other using shared wireless medium. Due to their distributed nature and dynamic topology, MANET is less secured than wired network. To enhance the security of MANET, it is important to establish routing path based on the trustworthiness of each node in the network. Most existing routing protocols in MANET mainly focus at finding efficient routing path. To deal with the effect of malicious node, trustworthiness of node can be taken into consideration in routing decision making. A routing protocol based on distributed dominating set based clustering algorithm is presented in this paper.
