Ad-hoc network also called MANET refers to a self-motivated, structure less temporary network that can be developed by the group of moving nodes. In this type of network nodes can leave or enter at any instant of time within the network. Therefore prone to the security threat, a major and well-known security attack that occurs in MANETs is a black hole attack. Almost all existing approaches are securing this nature of attack either based on the energy of a node or by providing a key. However as the network is mobile, so key distribution is a challenging task. So simply we can assume that distribution of keys is not possible in this network. The presented approach is a novel security method which doesn’t require any key distribution called ESMBMCRT: Enhance Security to MANETs against Black hole Attack using modified CR Technique to provide the security. The presenting security method not only enhances the security to the network but also minimizes the energy consumed which is also the important concern of such networks. We authenticate our approach by using NS2.
