Trustworthy Robust Routing Protocol for Mobile Ad Hoc Network
A protocol called RMP (Route Management Protocol) is proposed; for making misbehavior effect eliminated on Adhoc network is proposed. It aims at detecting and isolating misbehaving nodes, thus making it unattractive to deny cooperation. Trust relationships and routing decisions are based on experienced, observed, or reported routing and forwarding behavior of other nodes. The implementation of this protocol is made on the network layer based on the Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) protocol. The authors present a performance analysis of DSR fortified by RMP and compare it to regular defenseless DSR. A network with RMP is observed to improve about 60% of misbehaving nodes in the network, in contrast to a defenseless network.
