Mobile ad hoc networks often support sensitive applications. Those applications might require that users' identity, location, etc. to be kept secret. This is considered as one of the challenge in a MANET because of the cooperative nature of the network and broadcast nature of the communication media. Privacy protection in mobile ad hoc networks is more demanding because of their open nature and due to the presence of various attacks. Thus this paper provides stronger and efficient privacy requirements by proposing an unobservable routing method that resist against DoS attack and thereby providing complete unlinkability and content unobservability for all types of packets.
