An ad hoc wireless network is an autonomous self-organizing
system of mobile nodes connected by wireless links where
nodes not in direct range can communicate via intermediate
nodes. A common technique used in routing protocols for ad
hoc wireless networks is to establish the routing paths on-
demand, as opposed to continually maintaining a complete
routing table. A significant concern in routing is the abil-
ity to function in the presence of byzantine failures which
include nodes that drop, modify, or mis-route packets in an
attempt to disrupt the routing service.
We propose an on-demand routing protocol for ad hoc
