Devices taking part in mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) co-operate with each other to route packets by strictly adhering to the ad hoc routing protocol in use. Malicious nodes taking part in co-operative routing can launch a wide variety of attacks to reduce the utility of MANETs. The aim of secure routing protocols is to ensure that MANETs can continue to function even in the face of malicious nodes. Secure routing protocols should have measures to dissuade attackers by detecting inconsistencies, identifying the perpetrator responsible for the inconsistency, and provide means to inhibit the role of misbehaving nodes. Most existing secure routing protocols try to achieve only first step, viz., detection of inconsistencies. This dissertation research investigates and proposes efficient strategies that substantially enhance the scope of assurances provided by secure MANET routing protocols while keeping the overhead low.
