A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a collection of wireless mobile nodes dynamically shaping a provisional network devoid of the use of any existing network infrastructure or centralized management. In MANETs, security is the major challenge due to thedynamic topology which is because of the mobility of the nodes. Inthis paper, we propose to design and develop a secure methodologyincorporated with the routing mechanism without having anycompromise on the performance metrics viz., throughput, and packet delivery fraction. Not only just improving the throughput and packet delivery fraction it will also reduce the end-to-end delay and MAC overhead along with reduced packet loss. We name it as Secured- Dynamic Source Routing (SDSR) protocol. It adopts several featuresof the already existing protocol named Dynamic Source Routing(DSR). The simulation results prove that our proposed protocolSDSR outperforms DSR in all performance aspects.
The alluring infrastructure-less phenomenon of mobile adhoc networks (MANETs) has received more attention in theresearch society. With the success of solving the mostfundamental but vital issues in all network layers, personsunderstand there is commercial value in MANETs. The most of the applications that draw attention for utilizing in currentwired networks (e.g., video conferencing, on-line live movies,and instant messenger with camera enabled) would attractinterest for MANETs. Though, MANETs present distinctiveadvanced challenges, including the design of protocols formobility management, effective routing, data transportation,security, power managing, and quality-of-service (QoS). Oncethese issues are resolved, the use of MANETs will beattainable. Nowadays applications heavily demand thefulfilment of their Quality of Service (QoS) requirements,which in this distributed and particular environment can bedifficult to solve. This scenario requires specific proposalsadapted to the new problem statements [3, 5, 12]. Trying tosolve all these problems and coming out with a single solutionwould be too complex. To offer bandwidth-guaranteed QoS,the available end-to-end bandwidth along a route from thesource to the destination must be known. The end-to-endthroughput is a concave parameter , which is determinedby the bottleneck bandwidth of the intermediate hosts in theroute. A survey of several routing protocols and theirperformance comparisons have been reported in . Hence inthis paper, we focus on providing security along with QoS inMANETs.In order to design good protocols for MANETs, it isimportant to understand the fundamental properties of thesenetworks.
Every node in the mobile ad hoc network will change its position on its own. Hence prediction of thetopology is difficult, and the network status is not clear and it isvague.
There is no existence of centralizedcontrol in mobile ad hoc network and, hence assigningresources to MANET in advance is not possible.
The medium is wireless, hence resultsin fading, multipath effects, time variation, etc. With thesecomplications, Hard QoS is not easy to achieve.II.
First, In  Zhao et al have reviewed the existingapproaches of available bandwidth estimation. They presentedthe efforts and challenges in estimation of bandwidth. Also,they proposed a model for finding available bandwidth withimproved accuracy of sensing based bandwidth estimation aswell as prediction of available bandwidth.In  Gui et al have defined routing optimality with theusage of different metrics like path length, energy consumptionand energy aware load balancing within the hosts. Along withthey have proposed a methodology for self-healing andoptimizing routing (SHORT) technique for MANET. SHORTincreases performance with regard to bandwidth and latency.They classified SHORT into two categories such as Path-Aware SHORT and Energy-Aware SHORT.The QAMNet  approach extends existing ODMRProuting by introducing traffic prioritization, distributedresource probing and admission control mechanisms to provideQoS multicasting. For available bandwidth estimation, it used
