Security in MANET is the most vital concern for the basic functionality of network. One of the most important challenges in MANET is to design the robust security solution that can protect MANET from various routing attacks. Different type of mechanisms has been proposed using different cryptographic techniques to countermeasure the routing attacks against MANET. The authors have taken VBOR as the base protocol. The VBOR protocol consists of two phases namely, route maintenance and route discovery with the use of variable bit rate.
