Efficient Node Cooperation and Security in MANET using Closeness Technique
By description, a Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) does not stay on any permanent infrastructure; in its place, all networking utilities (e.g., routing, mobility management, etc.) are accessed by the nodes themselves in a self-organizing manner. On the other hand, it is rigid to support cooperativeness among the nodes for their own restricted resources that require to be conserved. These scrupulous nodes which are also termed as selfish nodes decline to help other nodes in forwarding packets owing to the anxiety of having resource. Several researches design a new method that aims at attaining confidentiality of the location for an efficient communication.
