Review of Security Approaches in Routing Protocol in Mobile Adhoc Network

Sumati Ramakrishna Gowda and P.S Hiremath

In this paper the objective is to present a review of routing protocols in mobile ad hoc network (MANET) exclusively from security viewpoint. In MANET, the mobile nodes often move randomly for which reason the cumulative network experiences rapid and much unpredictable topology alterations. Due to presence of dynamic topology as well as limited range of transmission, very often some nodes cannot communicate directly with each other. Because of this phenomenon, all the QoS and security issues surface. Till now there is abundant literature work being formulated towards designing routing protocols. But security features designed till now are not able to provide optimal security towards secure routing. Routing protocols, data, bandwidth and battery power are the common target of the attackers. Therefore, in this paper the attempts are to throw light on the work that were focused exclusively for maintaining security in routing protocols in MANET
