A mobile Ad-hoc network (MANET) is an impulsive network that can be recognized with no predetermined infrastructure. To achieve safe path selection cryptographic key exchange was implemented mostly in turn of huge computational cost. Confidence based coordination in MANET focuses on routing challenges created by selfish nodes, as energy utilization & time factor are key issues in this aspect. The present protocol is focused on fuzzy optimization-based node confidence estimation and path selection with minimum energy utilization. The node with maximum confidence value will give high priority to include in the path for transmission. In the implemented protocol to build a novel confidence-based model multidimensional factors like confidence value, link cost, degree of node and node energy are included as decision-making factors. The proposed protocol CLBNSRM estimates confidence level in four steps to decidea trustworthiness of neighboring node. To estimate the efficiency of the present confidence model various protocols are compared by using attributes like the number of nodes, node speed, malicious node variation, etc. Moreover, different parameters like Packet delivery ratio, Throughput, Residual energy, and Packet dropped are considered with these attribute variations. Experimental results indicate that PDR and Throughput increase although in presence of malicious nodes, along with the utilization of minimal energy. Statistical analysis is carried out for mathematical modeling. This analysis showsthat a linear model of an implemented protocol is better than compared protocol with all the aspects.
