Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) consist of a collection of wireless mobile nodes which dynamically exchange data among themselves without the reliance on a fixed base station or a wired back-bone network. Multipath routing allows the establishment of multiple paths between a single source and single destination node. It is typically proposed in order to increase the reliability of data transmission (i.e., fault tolerance) or to provide load balancing. To avoid frequent route discovery, various multipath routing protocol has been proposed based on the existing single path routing protocol in ad hoc networks. Ad hoc On-demand Multipath Distance Vector (AOMDV) is one of extension to the well-studied Ad hoc On Distance Vector (AODV). Security has become one of the major issues for data communication over MANET.
