Abstract

Most of the MANET security research has so far focused on providing routing security and confidentiality to the data packets, but less has been done to ensure privacy and anonymity of the communicating entities. In this paper, we propose a routing protocol which ensures anonymity, privacy of the user. This is achieved by randomly selecting next hop at each intermediate. This protocol also provides data security using public key ciphers. The protocol is simulated using in-house simulator written in C with OpenSSL crypto APIs. The robustness of our protocol is evaluated against known security attacks.
