Wireless mesh network is a new type of network in which each node is connected to other nodes to enhance network reliability and performance. As compared to routing in other networks, wireless mesh network faces a lot of problem. Routing in wireless mesh network is a challenging task. Field based routing uses a little information to route the packets in the network. Due to this characteristic, field based routing algorithms are less expensive and much effective, but such algorithms also face different types of security attacks. In this paper, a novel Enhance Secure Field Based Routing Algorithm (ESFBR) is proposed which is an extension to the existing secure field based routing algorithm. ESFBR has been comprehensively tested using Omnet++ network identify and isolate the malicious node and to prevent the traffic flows from various attacks.
