The route between source and destination, source identity and destination identity are hiding by means of anonymous routing protocols. Anonymous routing protocols use hop by hop encryption or redundant traffic in the existing system, which may cause high cost and it doesn't provide different anonymity protection to source, destination and route. So, the authors propose a protocol called Anonymous Location based Efficient Routing Protocol (ALERT). The main technique used to provide anonymity is hierarchical partition. ALERT dynamically partition the network into vertical/horizontal zone.
