Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETS) consist of mobile node without having any centralized access point. Due to dynamic nature, lack of network integrity and authentication may likely to occur. To avoid this, several approaches have focused on authentication. In this paper, hybrid cluster enhanced secure multicast routing scheme is proposed to make network more secure. The paper is to protect mobile nodes and its packets against attackers. In the presence of network attackers, performance will be degraded.
