In recent years, security has been the most focused area in ad Hoc networks research. Wireless ad hoc networks will be widely used in the near future since these networks form the topology with low cost. Mobile nodes contributes vital role in wireless networks. However consumer electronic devices (mobile nodes) operate under limited energy and battery power and could be vulnerable to security threats easily such as data flooding attacks. Especially while downloading multimedia data flooding attack can be lead to complete disruption of service (Denial of Service) due to which performance and quality of service may degrade though they follow different routing trusted protocols.
