Eusor: An Extended Usor Protocol For Manet
For the ad-hoc networks requiring strong privacy protection, privacy-preserving routing protocol is a crucial need.
Unfortunately, none of the proposed or available protocols, for such routing, offer properties such as complete unlinkability
and unobservability, the data and control packets being linkable and distinguishable. The USOR protocol has given a try to
fulfil the requirement of unlinkability and unobservability resulting Privacy-preserving routing against passive attacks.
Despite the efforts to avoid the attacks, the wireless networks are still vulnerable to the Worm-hole Attacks. Hence, a new
scheme is proposed to overcome the limitations of the USOR, giving a stronger protection against the Wormhole Attack.
The simulations evaluated that the new proposed EUSOR protocol proves better than USOR protocol.
