Unknown accessing is important for many applications in MANET (Mobile Ad hoc NETwork) in adversary environments. The main aim of network is to provide unidentifiability and unlink ability for mobile nodes. In this paper, a new routing protocol, i.e., Authenticated Anonymous Secure Routing (AASR), to satisfy the requirement and defend the attacks has been used. More specifically, the route request packets are authenticated by a group signature, to defend the potential active attacks without unveiling the node identities. In this paper, they will improve AASR to reduce the packet delay. A possible method is to combine it with a trust-based routing.
