In MANETs, supporting a routing protocol with an intrusion detection system (IDS) is crucial in ensuring secure communication. This paper proposes a novel Voucher assisted Adaptive ACKnowledgement (VAACK) mechanism for the detection of routing misbehaviors in MANETs. The protocol uses a novel voucher acknowledgment technique which is assisted by an efficient route scanning module. The proposed protocol is complete in the absence of node collusions and, it is also sound. Moreover, the protocol can partially fight against node collusion. The analytical and the simulation results confirm the effectiveness of the proposed protocol.
