Securing a “Wireless Ad Hoc Network” (WAHN) is a major concern of network administrators. This is particularly so in case of the wireless networks due to their unique characteristics that varies from the traditional networks. For example, WAHN are vulnerable to internal as well as external attacks relatively easily, as compared with traditional networks, because of their ability to be accessible from anywhere within their range. Many solutions have been proposed in this area and they are also being continuously improved. Most of these solutions involve encryption; secure routing, quality of service, and so forth. However, each of these solutions is designed to operate in a particular situation; and it may fail to work successfully in other scenarios. This particular research work offers an alternate to improving the trustworthiness of the neighbourhood and securing the routing procedure. This security is achieved by dynamically computing the trust in neighbours and selecting the most secure route from the available ones for the data transfer. There is also a provision to detect the compromised node and virtually removing it from the network.
