Evaluating Energy Eciency of Secure Routing Schemes for Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks


Rutvij H. Jhaveri

One of the primary concerns during the design of a secure routing protocol in Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETs) is the balance between security and energy efficiency. Routing decisions play a vital role in secure data transmission and in balancing power consumption at the network layer in order to achieve Quality-of-Service (QoS) requirements in the network. This paper aims at evaluating the energy efficiency of different secure routing schemes addressing packet forwarding misbehavior in MANETs. The approaches are evaluated in NS-2 under distinct types of adversaries and under varying network conditions.
