Abstract: In this paper, we propose an efficient and privacy-preserving scheme against (EPSA) wormhole attack on reactive routing, called EPSA, for mobile ad hoc social networks. We choose the AODV and DSR as reactive protocols. Specifically, the proposed EPSA scheme consists of four phases: the system initialisation phase, the peer registration phase, the document forwarding phase, and the detection, verification and avoidance phase. Based on the public key encryption with keyword search (PECSK), the cooperative neighbour × neighbour (CNN), and the short signatures technique (SST), the proposed EPSA scheme can not only detect and avoid but also can preserves the resources privacy against wormhole attack on reactive routing. Both wormhole time analysis and security analysis demonstrate the efficiency and effectiveness of the proposed EPSA scheme in both reactive routing protocols.
