In Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs),security has become one of the major issues for data communication and every node overhears every data transmission in the and thus consumes energy unnecessarily. Some MANET routing protocols such as Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) collect route information via overhearing, they would suffer if they are used in combination with 802.11 PSM. The authors will propose a dynamic routing algorithm that could randomize delivery paths for data transmission. The algorithm is easy to implement and compatible with popular routing protocols, such as the Routing Information Protocol in wired networks and Destination-Sequenced Distance Vector protocol in wireless networks.
