Ad hoc on-Demand distance vector routing (AODV) is one of the most commonly used protocol in Mobile Ad Hoc networks(MANETS). However the protocol suffers from security concerns and is open to many security threats. In this paper we propose a novel VPNAODV protocol which uses techniques like Virtual Private Network,Observer nodes and Digital signature in order to safeguard the protocol from attacks like wormhole, blackhole, flooding and Sybil attack. The proposed protocol not only enhances the basic AODV protocol but it also successfully retains the underlying functionality of the algorithm. We have simulated the results using Network Simulator-2 and have compared the results of AODV with our proposed algorithm.
