MOSAR: A Secured On-Demand Routing Protocol for Mobile Multilevel Ad Hoc Networks
In this paper, the authors propose a routing scheme, called MOSAR, which is able to handle the security classification of packets during the route discovery and route maintenance. The scheme should provide the network reasonable balances between security, performance and computation power efficiency. For above purposes, a new field called Route Security Requirement is added in the routing header as the indicator of security requirement. Therefore, routing is about to find the path from source to destination that all the nodes on which meet the security requirement.
