Computer network is very essential part of everyone's life by which people can share the information via different technologies such as wired or wireless. Generally the wireless is mostly adopted technology by them due to various advantages like ease of installation, mobility, reconfigure ability, low infrastructural cost etc. but suffers from more attacks as the wireless channel is open. Therefore, many researchers are working in this hot area to secure the wireless communication. Cross layer design refers to protocol design done by actively exploiting the dependence between the protocol layers to obtain better performance gain in the wireless environment.
