An Approach to Provide Security in Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks Using Counter Mode of Encryption on Mac Layer
Security in any of the networks became an important issue in this paper, the authors have implemented a security mechanism on Medium Access Control layer by Assured Neighbor based Security Protocol to provide authentication and confidentiality of packets along with High speed transmission for Ad hoc networks. Here they have divided the protocol into two different parts. The first part deals with Routing layer information; in this part they have tried to implement a possible strategy for detecting and isolating the malicious nodes. The second part of their protocol deals with the security in the link layer.
