A disunited mobile network which lacks of intact affinity as a result of packed network is intermittently connected mobile networks (ICMN). Routing becomes insecure here. High migration of the nodes in the nexus is the reason behind its packed lineament. Detection of the fishy nodes in the network is little tough because of its disunited idiosyncrasy. A secure routing that paves way in detecting and freezing invasion of fishy nodes has been launched in this paper. Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) makes the routing process compatible. Secure communication in the network is made possible by certain authentication series as ICMN is known for its higher delays. A peculiar routing protocol called Privacy Preserving Ant Routing Protocol (PPARP) which is a fusion of ACO with authentication series promises us an expected security. Fishy nodes in the network aids to examine the security grade which proves PPARP as the best.
