MANETS are mobile adhoc networks with no fixed infrastructure and is in dynamic nature. Nodes are mobile, connected without wires and they don't have any central supervision. Wireless infrastructure, changing topology, mobility of nodes are advantageous. These qualities of MANET make the network open for many types of attacks at different layer. The main problem is, the detection of the cause of attack and prevention of attacks becomes complex. This paper introduces a dynamic routing algorithm for prevention of many attacks. This algorithm is cost effective and provides secure data transmission.
