The increased popularity and usage of wireless technologies has opened the doors for new emerging applications in the domain of networking. A Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is an autonomous system of mobile routers connected by wireless links. In this network, a mobile node acts as a host and a router at the same time. Secure routing is a promising area for achieving better security for the network by protecting the routing protocols against malicious attacks. In this paper, a new mechanism is proposed that improves the performance of routing protocol against the malicious attacks.
