Abstract :

Performance of mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) is a factor of the extent of their co-operation between individual nodes. To constitute the network node co-operate with each other. The existence of mischivious nodes may block the routing operation in MANETs and routing becomes difficult. To overcome this behavior, the network nodes, which behave according to the protocol should be recognized at the route selection process along with the hop count. This is achieved by assuring the normal behavior for each participating nodes in the network. In this paper, a protocol is reviewed which is based on self monitoring (agent-based) and follows the dynamic source routing (DSR) algorithm. This protocol is known as agent-based trusted dynamic source routing protocol for MANETs. The objective of the protocol is to manage trust information with minimal overhead and improvement in time delay. This objective is achieved by a multi-agent scheme (MAS). MAS consists of agents which are known as: monitoring agent and routing agent. An objective model for measurement of the trust value is reviewed. This model is weighted by both numbers and size of routed packets.
