Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a group of autonomous mobile nodes or devices connected through wireless links without the support of a communications infrastructure. This paper modifies the existing AODV protocol. The existing AODV protocol is modified using the clonal selection algorithm of the artificial immune system. The proposed algorithm uses the concept of the artificial immune system for the routing of data from source to the destination. This makes the proposed algorithm secure and efficient. The simulation result shows the better performance of proposed algorithm as compared to the existing algorithm.
