The current existing Authenticated Routing for Ad hoc Networks (ARANs) secure routing protocol is capable of defending itself against most malicious nodes and their different attacks. However, ARAN is not capable of defending itself against any authenticated selfish node participating in the network. Therefore, this paper is to make the authenticated routing for ad hoc networks secure routing protocol capable of defending itself against authenticated selfish nodes participating in the mobile ad hoc network. The resulting new protocol is called reputed-ARAN. This paper is done by integrating a reputation-based scheme, to detect, punish and isolate selfish nodes, to currently existing ARAN protocol and then measuring the effectiveness of that integration.
