Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are wireless and dynamic topology networks. The major issue of mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) is to send data in secured manner from source to destination node in an adversarial (opponent) environment. Wireless networks are vulnerable to many attacks that are not secured and less-trustworthy. Existing research work focuses on developing the routing protocols for security enhancement in adversarial environment. These protocols are not secured in MANET environment. The existing protocol works on the basis of authentication, group signature, and onion routing. In this paper, the proposal of Trust based Anonymous Secure Routing for MANET in Adversarial environment is created to provide secured environment. TBASR protocol defends the neighbor nodes attacks by the way of key encryption and decryption through route-request and reply. Trust of the path is achieved by Asymmetric key encryption and that of the node is attained through group signature. It helps to detect intruders in the networks and avoids packet delay between intruder nodes. Onion Routing is used for obtaining anonymity during packet transmission. © Research India Publications.
