SECURE AND ENERGY-AWARE ROUTING FOR RELIABLE DATA TRANSMISSION IN MOBILE AD HOC NETWORKS

Abstract
Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) is a generic technology utilized in various real-time applications. The MANET is a self-configuring and self-directed system that quickly deploys in a network. Data transfer is a big issue in MANET due to poor wireless medium and lack of data security and reliability. The prior system established a mobile ad hoc content distribution strategy. The ideal Cluster Head (CH) is chosen using the Teaching Learning Based Optimization (TLBO) approach. However, due to these features, it is more vulnerable to attacks. In addition, it impacts packet delivery and throughput. The proposed system designed a Secure and Energy Aware Routing (SEAR) mechanism to improve MANET data transmission reliability and security. Initially, nodes are clustered by distance. Then the Weight-based Artificial Fish Swarm Algorithm (WAFSA) is used to pick the optimum Cluster Head (CH). Mobility, remaining energy, and connectivity are considered objective functions for CH selection. Securing communication between these nodes will require proper cryptography. The security mechanism generates secret keys using Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) to encrypt or decode messages delivered between member nodes. This security approach enables secure communication between member nodes and CHs, uses the NS-2 analytical platform, and outperforms the existing system regarding average energy drop, network lifetime, and encryption time.
