Ad hoc wireless networks have emerged as one of the key growth areas for wireless networking and computing technology. Ad hoc networks are a new wireless networking paradigm for mobile hosts. Unlike traditional mobile wireless networks, ad hoc networks do not rely on any fixed infrastructure. Instead, hosts rely on each other to keep the network connected. Most of the routing protocols in wireless ad hoc networks, such as DSR, assume nodes are trustworthy and cooperative. One of the major factors effecting the ad hoc communication is the misbehaving of nodes.
