[Abstract]: A new innovative deployment of wireless technology is mobile ad hoc network (MANET). A MANET is characterised by no fixed infrastructure or varying topologized structure. This feature allows MANET to be deployed within many circumstances where traditional IP networks are constrained or too expensive in terms of time and resources. Adversely, the mobility of node renders MANETs vulnerable to many malicious attacks.

Security mechanism in MANETs usually contains secure routing and secures data transmission. There are already some mechanisms to secure end-to-end transmission but there are limited number of strategies of securing the routing message or protocols. In this paper, we deliberate and implement one secure routing protocol FLSL (Adaptive Fuzzy Logic Based Security Level Routing Protocol) and study its performance under different scenarios. The implementation of FLSL protocol has been carried out by use of NS-2. Various experiments results from simulation verify the protocols, also demonstrate the feasibility of the protocol. A set of experiments under different scenarios have been presented and results of these experiments have been analysed.
