Wireless mobile Ad-Hoc networks (MANETs) are networks of mo- bile nodes with no fixed infrastructures. Their peer-to-peer communication ar- chitectures over shared wireless medium with no clear line of defense pose a number of challenges to security design. Some previous works have used a form of digital signature for protection. However, there are still limitations in the implementation. This paper 1 proposes a variant of the Merkle Signature Scheme (MSS) to protect an Ad-Hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) protocol, a common routing protocol for MANETs. The new protocol is named Extra Secure AODV or ESAODV in short. ESAODV provides hop-count pro- tection, digital signature and protocol enforcement. Through these features sev- eral security benefits on the routing packets have been established, namely fast authentication, integrity, and non-repudiation. Several experiments have been conducted using different digital signatures of the MSS variant signatures. The result shows that ESAODV is effectiv e for combating routing attacks, and works properly although the malicious are 20% of the nodes total number in MANETs. In terms of features, ESAODV are also far superior than secure AODV (SAODV) and Authenticated Routing for Ad hoc Networks (ARAN).
