Secured Multi Path Routing With Trust Establishment Using Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
The authors propose a novel method of message security using trust-based multi-path routing. Simulation results, coupled with theoretical justification, affirm that the proposed solution is much more secured than the traditional multi-path routing algorithms. The authors propose a method to securely route messages in an ad-hoc network using multi-path routing and trustworthiness of the nodes. Hence, they aim at addressing the issues underlying message confidentiality, message integrity and access control. They combine multi-path routing and trust with soft encryption technology to propose a scheme which is much more secure than traditional multi-path algorithms. By soft encryption, they mean having encryption methods, but are more efficient in terms of performance and require less resource.
