— Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are independent self-organizing systems of mobile nodes or computers connected by wireless links and without using of any infrastructure like base stations or access points. Routing is a critical function in multi-hop mobile ad hoc networks. The most important requirement for MANET routing protocols is the ability to operate in adversarial environments. In this paper, we proposed Secure Lightweight Routing protocol with Confidentiality Redundancy in wireless ad hoc networks (SLRCR). This protocol consists of two phases: 1) Using of MAC and symmetric cryptography for nodes authentication and 2) using of μTESLA for Confidentiality redundancy. This protocol is lightweight and robust; also, it is able to prevent large number types of routing attacks.
