In MANET secure routing is an important issue because of its self organizing and cooperative nature, capable of autonomous operation, rapid changing topologies, limited physical security and limited energy resource. So our proposal is a new scheme which significantly differs from other available schemes dealing with security attacks against mobile ad hoc networks. In this paper, our proposed scheme, Efficient Secure Routing Protocol in MANET (ESRP) provides a new routing scheme based on trust, which is an integer value that helps to select administrator inside the network for routing. The comparison between our proposed protocol and parameters of ad hoc network shows the performance according to secure protocol. We have also implemented the message confidentiality and integrity in our proposed scheme. Our simulation result shows the robustness, reliability and trustworthiness of our scheme.
