Abstract: The increased popularity of mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) is only due to their unique characteristics. It requires highly efficient mechanisms, in order to cope with the dynamically changing topologies. The environmental changes in turn increase the complexities of algorithms used to maintain the topology. A keen analysis of network scenarios is required to maintain a balanced network in all aspects. A centralised monitoring system can address this issue up to a tolerable level. But, that in turn increases the risk of one point failure as well as the problems due to unavailability. The main goal of this work is to propose a secure, environment-adaptive distributed node joining approach for MANET. It uses a cluster-based network model. This approach reduces the risk factors at the time of node joining as well as it can maintain the network in a balanced manner. The aim of this work is mainly focused on the problems of the MANET due to the dynamically changing topologies.
