Abstract: Mobile Ad hoc Networks are established for extemporaneous services customized to application. These networks exist for limited period of time based on demands. This infrastructure less networks support data networking services using routing protocols. Reactive routing protocols serve the issue over proactive routing protocols [7]. As the communication is through multiple intermediate nodes, circumstances lead for the attacks lacking security [12]. Existing proactive routing protocols does not endow with security aspects within [1]. In this paper, we introduce an enhanced secured routing protocol and its performance is compared with the existing protocols namely, Ad hoc On demand Distance Vector Routing (AODV), Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) & Zone Routing Protocol (ZRP) in terms of delay, jitter and throughput using Qualnet simulation software.
Keywords: Ad hoc networks, jitter, routing protocols, secured routing.
