Security is a critical issue in a mobile ad hoc network (MANET). In most of the previous protocols security is an added layer above the routing protocol. We propose a Trust-Aware Routing Protocol (TARP) for secure-trusted routing in mobile ad hoc networks. In TARP, security is inherently built into the routing protocol where each node evaluates the trust level of its neighbors based on a set of attributes and determines the route based on these attributes. This paper evaluates the proposed TARP… CONTINUE READING
