Abstract

A Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) consists of mobile nodes which co-operate to forward each other’s packets without the presence of any centralized authority. Due to this lack of centralized monitoring authority, MANETs have become vulnerable to various kinds of routing misbehaviour. Sometimes, nodes exhibit non-cooperating behaviour for conserving their own resources and exploiting others’ by relaying their traffic. A node may even drop packets of other nodes in the guise of forwarding them. This paper proposes an efficient Reputation and Collaboration technique through route-request for handling such misbehaving nodes. It lays emphasis not only on direct observation but also considers the opinion of other nodes about misbehaving nodes in the network. Unlike existing schemes which generate separate messages for spreading second-hand information in the network, nodes purvey their opinion through route-request packet. Simulation studies reveal that the proposed scheme significantly improves the network performance by efficiently handling the misbehaving nodes in the network.
