Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) uses anonymous routing protocols that hide node identities and routes from outside observers in order to provide anonymity protection. However the existing routing protocols produces high cost. To provide High anonymity protection with low cost in MANET, the authors proposed energy aware ALERT (Anonymous Location based Efficient Routing proTocol). It consider the energy level of each node in the network, and chooses a node which has highest energy as a intermediate relay node to increase the life time of the network and also provides secured anonymity protection to the source, destination and routes.
