In this paper, the authors proposed a secure alternate path, called "Intruder safe path strategies using alternate path in an ad hoc network" which aims at addressing the above limitations by combining the best properties of both proactive and reactive approaches. The proposed algorithm is based on the concept of shortest path algorithm i.e. Dijkstra algorithm to achieve the security goals. The paper details the design of the proposed algorithm and providing security and analysis its robustness in the presence of multiple possible security attacks that involves impersonation, modification, fabrication and replay of packets caused either by an external advisory or an internal compromised node within the network.
