Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) uses anonymous routing protocols that hide node identities and routes from outside observers in order to provide anonymity protection. However the existing routing protocols produces high cost. To provide High anonymity protection with low cost in MANET, we proposed Energy Aware ALERT (Anonymous Location Based Efficient Routing Protocol).It consider the energy level of each node in the network, and chooses a node which has highest energy as a intermediate relay node to increase the life time of the network and also provides secured anonymity protection to the source, destination and Routes. In energy-aware ALERT protocol E-GPSR is used to choose a high level energy node as a intermediate relay node. Experimental results exhibit consistency with the theoretical analysis, and show that Energy-aware ALERT achieves better route anonymity protection with lower cost compared to other anonymous routing protocols. Also, Energy-aware ALERT achieves comparable routing efficiency to the E-GPSR geographical routing protocol.
