TARP: trust-aware routing protocol
Security is a critical issue in a mobile ad hoc network (MANET). In most of the previous protocols security is an added layer above the routing protocol. We propose a TrustAware Routing Protocol (TARP) for secure-trusted routing in mobile ad hoc networks. In TARP, security is inherently built into the routing protocol where each node evaluates the trust level of its neighbors based on a set of attributes and determines the route based on these attributes. This paper evaluates the proposed TARP protocols on two important attributes, the battery power and the software configuration. A secure route between a source and destination is established based on a confidence level prescribed by a user or application in terms of these attributes. Our performance evaluation shows that TARP is a robust and adaptive trust routing algorithm that reacts quickly and effectively to the dynamics of the network while still finding the shortest path to the destination. TARP is able to improve security and ...
