Efficient Anonymous Multicast Routing Protocol in MANET
Mobile Adhoc Networks are infrastructure less networks and the topology of the network changes dynamically. The dynamic change in topology leads to malicious traffic analysis. Inorder to provide security from malicious attackers, anonymous protocols are used. An anonymous protocol hides the nodes identity and path involved in the data transfer. The proposed Anonymous multicast routing (AMR) scheme provides anonymous protection with less delay and it blocks the malicious nodes which are involved in the data transfer prior to the transmission of the data. For efficiency and reliability, the data packets are divided into segments and the segments are transferred through multiple paths.
