A Fault Resilient Routing Protocol for Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks
— In a Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET), mobile devices cooperate to forward packets for each other without the assistance of dedicated routing infrastructures. Due to its networking flexibility and node mobility, MANET routing presents a new set of nontrivial challenges such as broadcast overhead, frequent topology changes, and slow convergence. Additionally, many proposed MANET routing protocols assume a friendly and cooperative environment, and hence are vulnerable to various attacks by misbehaving nodes. Recently, significant attention has been devoted to developing the fault resilient routing protocol for MANET, which requires routing stability and scalability in hostile and demanding environments. In this paper, we propose a fault resilient ad hoc routing protocol called Local Self-recovery Routing (LSR), that is geared to adapt to topology dynamics and selfish behaviors in the shortest possible time. During the route recovery, the shortest detour is found to repair the faulty ...
