Abstract: Routing in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks faces many challenges that are not faced in other networks. These involve limited resources, mobility of nodes and dynamic topology and security. Thus the aim of the routing protocol should be to improve the secured communication among the nodes in the network. Controlling Delay and Delay Variance plays an important role in the functioning of a routing protocol. It helps in selecting a route that is less congested, thus helping to uniformly distribute the traffic among the underlying nodes. It helps keep the performance of the network to an optimal level. This study investigates the delay and delay variance as the route selection metrics for on demand Distance Vector routing protocol which primarily uses the distance metrics. Security mechanism for this new algorithm involves Public Key Infrastructure for key distribution Digital signatures, Hash functions in a different manner to protect the Bandwidth Efficient Variance Adaptive Routing Algorithm against various security threats
