Securing any MANET routing protocol requires measures to ensure that routing information advertised by a node is consistent with routing information assimilated by a node. MANET nodes accumulate routing information that needs to be stored within them self. For this the authors present an idea of using IOMTs to prevent a node from misrepresenting or hiding this accumulated information., During routing process nodes gather two types of information: routing data, and auxiliary data. Therefore, they proposed the idea of having two trees, where the main IOMT can be used to store routing data, while the auxiliary IOMT handles auxiliary information.
