In Mobile Ad Hoc NETwork (MANET), an attacker can easily make a server or a network resource unavailable to users by temporarily interrupting or suspending the services of a host connected to the Internet. So far, several secured routing protocols have been proposed for MANET. But all of them have certain disadvantages. Hence, security in MANET is still a challenging area. An Efficient Secure Enhanced Routing Protocol (ESERP) for MANET is proposed which is an attack resistant authentication mechanism. The problem definition is that the proposed protocol focuses on efficient security against protocol exploitation flooding attacks which is a part of Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks in MANET routing protocols. The ESERP protocol is used to address all the issues of protocol attacks in DDoS attacks in MANET for route establishment. The Protocol exploitation flooding attacks in DDoS includes SYN floods, fragmented packet attacks, Ping of Death, Smurf DDoS and more. Detailed simulation studies have confirmed the efficiency and effectiveness of ESERP
