Secured routing is the emerging issue in ad hoc networks. One of the major problems in routing is malicious attacks, which are not only possible from outsider nodes but also from compromised nodes within the network. This vulnerability will affect the integrity of the network. In this paper, the authors have created a trusted third party certification authority, which will allow only certified nodes to connect with the network and it will also avoid misbehaviors in routing. In their proposed system they will create an authenticated and secured routing for the ad hoc network in two stages: their goal is to verify that the intended destination was reached and data transfer can be pipelined with its shortest path discovery operation.
