Mobile ad hoc network is infrastructure less type of network. In this paper, the authors present the prevention mechanism for black hole in mobile ad hoc network. The routing algorithms are analyzed and discrete properties of routing protocols are defined. The discrete properties support in distributed routing efficiently. The protocol is distributed and not dependent upon the centralized controlling node. Important features of Ad hoc On Demand Vector routing (AODV) are inherited and new mechanism is combined with it to get the multipath routing protocol for Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) to prevent the black hole attack.
