Ad Hoc network is a network that is not any fixed physical structure and is established with mobile nodes using wireless connections. Ad Hoc network is highly flexible and use dynamic network topology. Thus, the efficiency of the routing protocol will affect the all network performance. Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) is one of the extensively used routing protocols for packet transfer from source to destination. It relies on maintaining most recent information, for which, each ad-hoc node maintains hop count and sequence number field. Mobile ad hoc networks carriage many types of security problems, initiated by their open systems and nature of collaborative by limited accessibility of resources.

In this paper, his propose an improved version of DSR routing protocol using neighbor monitoring Scheme which prevents dos attack and accomplishes in maintaining Integrity Security Standard by following minimum hop count path. In GDSR a neighbor monitoring has been detected the routing and packet forwarding vulnerabilities for an incoming demand that helps to stabile its security and efficiency of incoming messages. GDSR DSR routing scheme is evaluated by simulation and results show that improved FPR, throughput and ETE delay can be obtained using simulator.
