Data relaying is a crucial component in Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) communications as they experience restricted broadcast range, resources and with no fixed infrastructure. Node collaboration is vital for relaying and very few protocols in MANET support it. Speed and security are the metrics to be considered while initiating route discoveries during node collaborations. Prior approaches ability to incorporate these metrics into Source Routing Protocol (SRP), endairA protocol of MANETS, the challenge lies in maintaining these metrics until the duration of the entire process of route discovery.
