In this paper, the authors study the implementation of Multi-cost routing for Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks where the end-to-end security is provided which is almost not found in traditional approach. A routing table is maintained with the one hop neighbor using AOMDV algorithm and each node is loaded with a maximum energy. Public key and private keys are generated by RSA algorithm and the public key is exchanged between the sender and the receiver. Though this process is time consuming, it is very efficient; as encrypted and secured routing is performed by checking and verifying the certificates (using MD5 algorithm) by the respective nodes. This process consumes less energy and thereby it saves the battery life time, which is a major issue in ad hoc networks.
