In recent years, a broad research has been done in the domain of Mobile Ad-hoc Networks(MANETs). Due to the
bounded resources in MANETs, to develop a reliable and efficient routing approach is still a threat or issues. There are distinct
aspects appropriate for research like synchronization, power consumption, routing, bandwidth consideration, etc. This paper
concentrates on routing approach which is the major challenging concern due to the change in topology of ad-hoc networks. Under a
number of network scheme, such as network topology and size, it is difficult to figure out which routing protocol may perform well.
In this paper we contribute an outline of broad range of the current routing approaches, with a special focus on their functionality and
characteristics. Also based on the routing information and methodologies the comparison is provided, which can be use to make
decisions of routing. Performance of all the routing protocols are considered as well. Further this consideration will benefit the
researcher to get an outline of the existing protocols and advice which protocols may have better performance with respect to
changing network scenario.

In this thesis, we have considered the routing
approaches in mobile ad hoc networks from the security
and congestion viewpoint. We have analyzed the threats
against ad hoc routing and presented the requirements
that need to be addressed for secure routing. Existing
secure routing algorithm for mobile ad hoc networks are
not much secure. And importance of Mobile networks
cannot be denied as the world of computing is getting
portable and compact. Unlike wired networks, mobile
networks pose a number of challenges to security
solutions due to their unpredictable topology, wireless
shared medium, heterogeneous resources and stringent
resource constraints etc. The Security research area is
still open as many of the provided solutions are
designed keeping a limited size scenario and limited
kind of attacks and vulnerabilities.
