The lack of static infrastructure causes several issues in mobile Ad Hoc network, such as energy utilization, node authentication and secure routing. In this paper we propose a new scheme for energy efficient secure routing of data packets in MANET. This approach will reduce the computational overhead to make it more energy efficient than existing schemes. As there is no stationary infrastructure,each node in MANET acts a router that forwards data packets to other nodes. Therefore selection of effective, suitable, adaptive and robust routing scheme is of utmost importance. We have reduced the amount of network activity for each node required to route a data packet. This leads to lesser wastage of energy and increases security.Our simulation results will show how this is energy efficient and secure. Finally we have discussed how this scheme prevents various attacks which may jeopardize any wireless network.
